Suffolk Coastal and Waveney District Councils are committed to improving the quality of life for everyone living in, working in and visiting east Suffolk. Already a progressive and successful partnership, we are in the process of combining our two authorities to create the largest district council in the country, delivering vital services to those who need them most.

Our councils are an exciting place to work and a great place to make a real difference to people’s lives.

We are currently seeking an enthusiastic and creative individual to provide a funding support service. The Funding Team provide a vital role within the East Suffolk councils in terms of sourcing, co-ordinating and managing external funding and managing a programme of community grants on behalf of the councils.  

Your responsibilities will include providing efficient and comprehensive funding advice and ensuring the team is fully briefed about external funding opportunities. You will also be responsible for signposting businesses, communities and groups across the districts to support agencies providing funding advice, or where appropriate, directly providing funding advice. You will also be involved in the management and administration of the community grants programmes.

You will have excellent interpersonal skills, strong numeracy and data handling skills and be educated to degree level or equivalent. In addition, you will have experience in the development of funding applications, funding bids and co-ordinating and administering grants processes  related to development and delivery of community projects and economic development projects. You will also have knowledge of relevant UK and EC funding sources and application procedures.

In return, we can offer great opportunities for training and development and we will give you all the support we can to build a great career with our organisation. There is also a superb benefits package including flexible working options and purpose built brand new office accommodation, as well as a generous leave entitlement, discount scheme, pension scheme and free car parking.
