About The Role

We have a brand new Project Manager opportunity which is a full time, 12 month fixed term contract sat within our Funding Strategy, Communication and Impact Directorate, created to manage the development and implementation of our Evidence and Impact Strategy.

We are committed to investing in evidence, both lived and learned, and sharing what has and hasn’t worked, using our learning to adapt and help those we work with to do the same. We want to focus the funding we provide on where it can help make the biggest difference. Our impact strategy will guide us towards achieving these ambitions and it will be framed around five core purposes: informing our equity-based approach; learning with communities; leading the agenda; demonstrating our impact; supporting evidence-based funding practice.

You will support a multi-disciplinary project team drawn from across The National Lottery Community Fund to develop and deliver the Evidence & Impact Strategy. Using excellent project management skills, you will support the team to:

  • deliver a programme of internal and external consultation that will inform the strategy’s focus and priorities
  • develop the Impact Strategy for publication in January 2025
  • develop a detailed delivery plan for colleagues working in Evidence & Impact that will outline the initial activities and actions that they will take to begin implementing the strategy
  • monitor progress, address challenges, manage risks and ensure that key milestones and deliverables are met

The National Lottery Community Fund is the largest funder of community activity in the UK – we support people and communities to prosper and thrive. We award money raised by players of The National Lottery  to community projects that bring people’s ideas and ambitions to life. We support a wide range of projects across our 4 mission areas of Community, Health, Environment and Children & Young People. Our grants range from as little as £500 to multi-million-pound projects.

National Lottery funding is open to everyone, but we focus on those communities and people facing the greatest needs.
