Knowledge and Insights Manager

Learning is at the heart of everything we do at the Foundation. In this new role, you’ll ensure that we’re making best use of evidence and insight to advance our work as a thoughtful and collaborative grant-maker. Working closely with our small team and family stakeholders, you’ll work flexibly across our broad portfolio to apply existing knowledge and facilitate internal data analysis, reflection and sense-making to ensure we perform our role as an independent funder as effectively as we can.

Partnerships and Learning Manager (maternity cover – up to 12 months)

In this maternity cover position, you’ll take on responsibility for advancing our work in two of our key thematic areas: Health and Social Causes and Scottish Culture and Heritage. Working closely with a volunteer-led giving group for each theme, you’ll bring your excellent interpersonal skills and knowledge of the third sector in Scotland to facilitate their ongoing learning about their current areas of focus, including through connections to other funders, experts and practitioners; help inform decisions about how to allocate grant-making budgets; and steward a portfolio of funding relationships with charities and organisations.

This opportunity may suit someone already working within another funding organisation or a sector support or infrastructure body who wishes to broaden their experience of grant-making and philanthropy, so we are open to secondment arrangements.
