Programme Manager (GMEF)

Thanks to funding secured through the Green Recovery Challenge Fund, we are now able to appoint a Programme Manager to a temporary one year contract who can lead the establishment of the Fund, negotiating new funding streams, contributing to how funds can be distributed to the most appropriate projects of strategic importance, as well as fundraise for further financial resources that can ensure that continuation of this post and expansion of the Fund’s income to a level where the Fund will be self-sufficient. This is an exciting opportunity to drive forward innovative action that will receive national recognition, within a leading City Region.

The Programme Manager will lead the establishment of an independent charitable trust which launches in March 2021 and is a key milestone within the GM Environment Plan that will support and attract inward investment to vital environmental projects in the GM City Region. This post will lead on negotiations to secure further funds, using these programmes as a springboard to future successes.

GMEF is also pioneering innovative investment models at a city region scale and of interest nationally. The Programme Manager will facilitate the development of repayable investment models and promote the impact these projects could have if delivered at scale.

The Lancashire Wildlife Trust is managing GMEF, so the Programme Manager will work alongside Greater Manchester operations based at Bolton, with potential hot desk space within Manchester. In the short term this post will work from home.
