LGBT Consortium Recruit for Exciting New Post of Sustainable Funding Development Manager

Monday, January 15, 2018 - 13:00

LGBT Consortium has had the idea of creating some form of sustainable funding model for the LGBT sector for longer than we can remember but in the last 12 months we have had the opportunity to bring together a diverse group of experts from across all interested sectors, including: funders; our own LGBT sector; the business sector; and the public sector.

We call this our LGBT Sustainable Funding Expert Taskforce and throughout 2017 we have been exploring whether the concept is a good one, how we might move things forward and what is needed to be in place for this to happen.

We are delighted that two high-profile funders (The Esmée Fairbairn Foundation and the Big Lottery Fund) have supported the funding of this role for one-year to work on specific milestones and outputs designed to get buy-in and structures in place.

This role is unique in that it isn’t just a job that works for LGBT Consortium, it is one that needs to work for the whole LGBT sector. Sustainability and  resilience are two words core to all of our work at LGBT Consortium and through this role we have an opportunity to put the building blocks in place for a platform that could provide long-term support and fundraising mechanisms for a diverse range of LGBT organisations of all sizes.

It is important to note that when we talk about a funding model, for us this is much more than just money (of course this is important!). It encompasses a whole development of thinking around how we as the LGBT sector approach income generation, relationship building, collaboration, partnership working and much, much more. This of course presents its challenges, but also presents many more opportunities and the successful candidate will have the support of myself, the LGBT Consortium team and our expert Taskforce.

The application process for this post is now closed.
