Who we are

Safer London is a charity working with young Londoners and families who are affected by violence and exploitation. We believe that when a child or young person comes to us they are just that – a child or a young person: we don’t define them by the issue that has brought them to us. By working alongside young Londoners, their families and peers in the places where they spend their time, we can create a safe London not just for them but for everyone.

Who you are

We’re looking for an experienced bid manager to help us improve the lives of young Londoners by growing our grant and contract-funded service portfolio.

You will understand the funding environment for youth charities from government commissioning and Trust funding opportunities, and will be ambitious to manage and drive growth across Safer London’s high quality and innovative service offer.

You will be someone with social justice at the core of your personal values, someone who places equity and inclusion at the centre of everything you do. We are also looking for someone with an understanding of and curiosity to learn about the varied experiences and challenges of young Londoners’ lives.

If you are committed and resilient, and believe you have what it takes to help us to improve the lives of young Londoners and their families please apply.

  • Work effectively with Safer London’s practice teams to identify opportunities and prepare successful funding bids in a competitive environment.
  • Develop and maintain a pipeline of prospective funders and scan the external environment to identify new funding opportunities that are aligned to Safer London’s aims and strategic priorities.

  • Build and maintain relationships with current and prospective funders, including through maximising any relationships held by senior colleagues and trustees.
  • Maintain and develop internal income generation systems and processes, including donor records, financial information, funder reports, and internal monitoring to ensure effective stewardship and internal visibility of progress against plans.
