Job Title: Relief in Need Coordinator

Organisation: Mountsorrel Relief in Need Fund

Salary: Negotiable (self employed position)

Location: Mountsorrel, Leicestershire

Closing Date: Friday 23rd October 5pm

Job Description:

Mountsorrel Relief in Need Charity makes grants to people in Mountsorrel, Leicestershire, who are in need, hardship or distress. Most grants are made to individuals in need, although grants are also made to organisations which provide services to people in the village.

We are looking for someone to effectively process all applications for grants on a part-time, self-employed basis, working from home, starting as soon as possible.

The role involves:

  • Visiting individual applicants in their homes and gathering detailed information about their needs, circumstances and finances
  • Presenting information to trustees and answering questions
  • Arranging the supply of goods and services to successful applicants

We are looking for someone who:

  • Is empathetic, caring and considerate, respectful and non-judgemental
  • Has relevant experience of working directly and sensitively with service users in need, hardship or distress
  • Has a good understanding of issues affecting people living in poverty, including the benefits system
  • Has knowledge and skills to input to, and maintain, a database
  • Knowledge of the Mountsorrel / Soar Valley / Charnwood area

Experience of grantmaking in a charity context would be an advantage and ideally you will have access to a vehicle to carry out home visits. The role is subject to a DBS check.

You will be provided with independent in-work emotional support, should you want it as part of the role.

The work is interesting, rewarding and occasionally challenging, with no two days the same.

Please note that the above details describe the role as it is usually carried out. At present, separate arrangements due to Covid-19 are in place to ensure the safety of the postholder.

More details of the role can be found on the Job Advert and Job Description that can be downloaded below.
