Are you looking for a new challenge to help in the continuous growth of a successful grant manager in Scotland?
Are you interested in creating a stronger collaboration between the public, private and third sector to create a positive social, economic and environmental impact within communities across Scotland?
Then this is a great opportunity for you as CEO of Impact Funding Partners (IFP).
Impact Funding Partners (formerly known as Voluntary Action Fund) are looking for a new Chief Executive with a proven track record of income growth and organisational development.
We are looking for a passionate individual with experience of working across a range of sectors including Government. You will have the opportunity to create positive social, economic and environmental impact within communities while helping to shape the funding landscape in Scotland.
This is an exciting time to join IFP (formerly known as the Voluntary Action Fund) following our rebranding, the recruitment of new board members creating a dynamic and proactive Board of Directors and the launch of our new strategy – Together we can create a Fairer Future – aimed at creating a fair, inclusive society where communities thrive and people are engaged, connected, and able to shape their own lives.
We are a successful grant manager with 37 years of experience, driven by our core values of equality, relationships, authenticity, openness and dynamism.
Our proven approach is to help funders make the most of their investment so that it has the greatest impact. This can be achieved by distributing funding, increasing capacity and building trusting relationships, which helps organisations achieve even more with their funding.
Our area of expertise is managing funds which tackle inequality in all its forms. Equality and diversity are core to our work and drives everything we do and how we do it.
As IFP has entered a new phase of growth following its rebranding and has initiated a new business strategy, you will have proven experience in successfully forming partnerships and promote cross-sectoral collaboration. You will be dealing with senior stakeholders in the public, private and/or third sector, and therefore you will need to demonstrate the ability to engage with public sector funding bodies, potential new funders in the private sector, as well as understand the nuances of the third sector.
A natural leader, you will have excellent communication and negotiation skills with the ability to adapt your management style in a changing environment, and lead through example and inspiration. As the CEO of IFP you will act as brand ambassador and convey IFP’s strengths, values and priorities to a diverse audience. For that you will have the vision, strategic insight and ability to understand the environment in which IFP operates and raise its profile.
In the current changing socio-economic and political environment in Scotland, it is imperative that you value and promote innovative thinking that allows for the identification of sustainable solutions with a positive social, economic and environmental impact. Finally, you are a decision-maker who is not afraid to take calculated risks in order to support the continuous growth of IFP.
