Office-based Ilkeston, Derbyshire. Home working option
An exciting opportunity has arisen for a motivated and committed person to work for the Angling Trust to assist in administering the Angling Improvement Fund. The Fund, launched in 2015, seeks to funnel a significant share of income from Rod Licence sales in England into projects that address areas of angling ‘need’, which, once completed, will return real benefits for anglers.

In this rewarding and varied job, the successful applicant will provide advice to potential Fund applicants, deliver results and feedback to successful and unsuccessful applicants, attend workshops and roadshows, and help assess delivery of funded projects via site visits. He or she will also be responsible for managing a new online grant management system. The post holder will also be responsible for updating the Angling Trust web site with guidance on delivering safe, successful projects and will research other sources of local / regional funding, working with the Angling Trust’s Regional Officers.

Applicants should have experience of working with complex information, including financial data, and have experience in providing guidance and advice (written and verbal) to customers. Excellent communication skills, an eye for detail, fairness and integrity, and a commitment to high standards of customer service are paramount. Ideally you should be aware of the development needs facing angling clubs and fisheries, and some experience helping to plan or deliver facilities improvements at fisheries will be an advantage.

You will be office based at the Angling Trust offices in Ilkeston, Derbyshire with an option to be home based in the Midlands. Working hours are flexible to accommodate commitments – there will be some weekend working and travelling.

You must be conscientious, self-motivated and have the ability to engage with and motivate others. Working within the Freshwater Team of Angling Trust, you will report to the National Angling Strategy Manager.
