About The Welcome Centre
The Welcome Centre is one of the largest food banks in the north of England. We have a team of eight staff working across two sites, supported by over 100 volunteers. Each year we support thousands of people in crisis in our community. Everyone we support is referred to us from one of our frontline partner agencies, and once people are referred to us, we provide practical support including food, toiletries, and other essential items. We also offer one to one advice, guidance and support to help them address any underlying or ongoing issues which prevent them from getting back on their feet.
We have a vacancy for a Grants Administrator who will be responsible for the end to end processing and monitoring of applications for non-food items we provide to our clients, such as white goods, microwaves, carpets or clothing. The Welcome Centre is often the last avenue of support for our clients, so this role requires clear communication, lateral thinking and empathy.
The Grants Administrator will ensure that applications for client grants are processed quickly and efficiently, liaising with referring agencies, clients and providers of goods to ensure a positive client experience.
Applicants should therefore have both previous administrative experience and prior knowledge of grant administration; we require the successful candidate to take a proactive and personable approach to communicating with our clients and partners.
The suitable candidate will be organised, client and quality-focused and be able to meet multiple deadlines.
The post is an opportunity to join us and contribute to the essential support that we give to individuals and families in crisis.
