RainbowYOUTH and Body Positive are pleased to announce a joint initiative to employ an experienced full time grants writer, providing the opportunity for the successful applicant to have a huge positive impact on the wellbeing of Rainbow communities in Aotearoa.
You will work to grow the grant income of both organisations by maintaining existing sources of funding, and researching and applying to new charitable trusts, philanthropic organisations, and/or local and central government funding. A key part of the role is building and maintaining relationships with funders, staff in local and central government, and with counterparts of your role in other charitable organisations.
As this role is key to the continued success and growth of both RainbowYOUTH and Body Positive, the successful applicant will work closely alongside the Executive Director's from both organisations to understand current funding sources, and the strategic direction of both organisations. A passion to see young queer and gender diverse people, and those living with HIV, being happy, supported and well is needed.
Completing accountabilities on time and to a good standard will be necessary to be successful long term in the role.
The role will include some bookkeeping administration for Body Positive, including regular reconciliation of their accounts, processing invoices and other payments for approval, coding transactions appropriately, and ensuring sufficient records are kept (i.e. receipts).
A challenge to the role will be being employed between two organisations, spending three days per week at Body Positive, and two days per week at RainbowYOUTH.Click here
