Grant Funding Advisor · Outward Facing Team
London, United Kingdom
Do you love helping people in the startup scene? Can you quickly understand the funding problems faced by business owners and think on your feet to come up with effective case-specific solutions? Can you make sense of the continually-evolving sea of government funding options? And would you have a genuine interest in researching this further? Could you identify relevant opportunities to add to the current GrantTree offering so we can get more startups to the next level? Do you want to be part of a team which is striving to grow and become the go-to place for startups who want equity-free funding? If so, read on, this might be the role for you!
The purpose of the role is simple and elegant - to make sure everyone who contacts GrantTree has a great experience, and much like the swan adage, a lot needs to be going on underneath to make this happen. We need someone who can understand and address the needs of everyone who reaches out to GrantTree, over the phone, via email or in person - communication skills are paramount! The role requires a friendly, energetic, tech enthusiast who understands our values and can make sure they are shining in every interaction with our potential clients. Internally, the Grant Funding Advisor will work closely with our key players in Promotions, New Products and Partnerships to make sure everything we learn from those who connect with us can be built into our solution space!
GrantTree is a different place to work. We believe in openness and transparency. Our financials are open to all employees - salaries, expenses, etc, all visible. We believe in trust and responsibility rather than command and control. To succeed in this environment, you must be genuinely self-motivated and highly effective in self-management, whilst also being team-minded, helpful and generous with your time. More of that on our website - please have a read about our culture and values before you apply!
Here are some of the things we are looking for in a perfect candidate:
- Exceptional communicator - written, over the phone, and in person, both client side and internally. You would be the first point of contact to anyone who reaches out to us!
- Highly organised - making sure that the effort you put in, can be kept track of and made use of in the future.
- Awesome research skills - drive to understand the government funding space inside out, and the ability to convert complex briefs into easily digestible sets of requirements.
- Enthusiasm for all things startup - desire to get out to events, make connections and really understand where we fit in with other businesses and where we can add value.
Pay for this role is £28k/y. In addition to this, we offer a revenue-share model for employees within the company, with a company-wide quarterly bonus scheme.
This is an outstanding chance to learn about the startup scene, build an extensive personal network in the startup community and work in a fun, unique and dynamic environment - we look forward to hearing from you!
