Cinema and Television Benevolent Fund

Director of Grants and Programme Development


£70,000 - £90,000

The industry has changed dramatically over recent years and as such, CTBF must reflect and respond to these changes to ensure that our work is truly reflective of the needs of the industry and those working within it. As such, we have appointed a new Chief Executive in 2017 with an exciting mission to complete a strategic review, raise our profile and significantly extend our reach and impact.

In early 2018 we are re-naming, re-branding and re-launching the charity. We will be re-engaging with the industries we serve and those who work within them, to reconnect and ensure we are relevant and in-step with the fast-moving pace of our industries and the changing nature of work.

We are looking to recruit an experienced Director of Grants and Programme Development to develop and lead a radical new strategy to expand the reach and impact of CTBF’s grants and programmes. The result will be a strategy that is relevant, collaborative, compelling and effective for a wide range of people spearheading the industry, and those who aspire to work within it.

The successful candidate will be a senior leader with consolidated experience of developing impactful programme or grant strategy, design and delivery. Bringing outstanding communication and partnership building skills, you will also have the ability to inspire confidence and build a team of highly motivated and well qualified staff through a period of exciting and ambitious change.
