Job description

Lloyds Bank Foundation for England and Wales is currently open for expressions of interest for a 2-year secondment starting in January 2022.

We are interested in hearing from people with the relevant professional and lived experience of complex social issues to come and join our Development team.  The Development team work to support communities across England and Wales to develop sustainable models for small organisations to survive and thrive into the future.  We do this in a variety of ways:

  • Working on models of organisational resilience
  • Working on linking SMEs to small organisations
  • Working with 6 communities to bring those who design, deliver, fund and use services together, to create new approaches to sustaining services
  • Developing skills based volunteering opportunities for colleagues in Lloyds Banking Group

The main duties of the role will be to support our work to stimulate system change in the six communities we are working within our ‘People and Communities’ workstream. 

This will involve supporting local people, funders, and partners to think differently about collectively designing, delivering, and resource local services. 

If you’re looking for an interesting and varied role, this is the right job for you. We can offer a friendly and supportive team and plenty of learning, development, and professional growth opportunities.
