Benevolent Fund Manager

About Us

Would it inspire you to see the tangible impact of your work on the world? To work for an organisation that is committed to making a positive difference for people everywhere? If so, we could be the organisation for you. We are the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), the world's largest and most influential professional body for construction management and leadership.

Our Benevolent Fund provides advice, support and financial assistance to our Members and their families worldwide, when they are experiencing times of difficulty. This vitally important service is provided by our Members, for our Members – and is funded through generous, voluntary donations.

About the Role

This is a really exciting time for the Fund as we look to re-brand and change our narrative. The fund has also recently started a partnership to provide direct mental health and wellbeing support to members. We want to ensure that this vitally important support is well-known to our Members, is accessible, and provides support when it is needed most. We’re looking for someone to drive this change.

In this standalone role, you will take full responsibility for the Benevolent Fund. You will provide vital, first line advice and support to those in need, referring to expert support services where necessary. You will oversee the full administration process of applications for grants or support and will maintain regular reporting and analysis, identifying trends in activity and recommending developments and improvements to the services offered.

You will actively promote the Fund throughout our global member base, working collaboratively with your colleagues across the world to build the profile of the Fund and encourage both donations to and use of the services available.

You will also act as the key point of contact for our Benevolent Fund Trustees, acting as Company Secretary and maintaining all legal and statutory compliance; and will manage all administrative activities, including budgeting and reporting.

About You

We’re looking for someone who can bring experience, empathy and passion to the role. You’ll be truly collaborative and consistently strive for excellence. You will be able to demonstrate a background within the charity or not-for-profit sectors, fundraising; promoting services; or providing advice and guidance.

You’ll have fantastic communication and interpersonal skills, with the ability to engage effectively and build strong relationships across a diverse range of stakeholders. You’ll have excellent administrative skills, and experience of working within process and compliance driven activities. Strong IT skills are also a must, with the ability to understand and analyse data.

Why Work For Us?

We can offer you not only the opportunity to make a real difference with the work you do, but the chance to do that in a really friendly, flexible and welcoming working environment, where we’ll show you that we’re committed to your personal wellbeing and to your development within your role.

We’ll offer you a fantastic range of benefits – from access to a great pension scheme through to a variety of health and wellbeing schemes; and we’ll make sure that you’re constantly learning throughout your time with us. We hold a Silver Investors in People Award – which we really hope will show you our commitment to this.
