Working With Us

Connecting People Who Care With Causes That Matter

The Community Foundation team are a motivated, driven team. For all our roles, a high degree of self-awareness and teamwork is required.

 

Could You Inspire Generosity?

The Community Foundation isn’t an ordinary organisation to work for and we aren’t looking for ordinary people. The team are self-directed, motivated and take responsibility for getting their own work done.

We’re always pushing for the new and better things that we can do. We support and encourage people, if they don’t know something, to go and find the answer themselves, not wait for someone to tell them. We trust and expect staff to get things done without always having to ask permission.
