Work with our Finance Director to identify funding opportunities

Administration volunteer needed for Ethical Reading

Working closely with Finance Director to identify opportunities to apply for funding for the Ethical Reading Programmes or core activities, using a range of feeds eg NCVO, SSE. Working with relevant Programme Director and/or Initiative lead to write the application and submit it, deal with requests for follow up information, etc.

At Ethical Reading, we believe that all everyone has the right to be treated with respect, fairness and compassion at work. Research show that if they are treated in this way, they feel better, are healthier and enjoy their work more.

  • Maintain links and track progress of government funding programmes and information from NCVO, SSE and other sources in discussion with relevant Directors.
  • Structuring/writing applications to specifications, submitting applications well before deadline, answering queries from funding agencies, in consultation with the relevant Director.
