About Best Beginnings

Best Beginnings is an established high-profile national charity with the primary purpose of tackling child health inequalities and enabling parents to help give their children the best start in life, regardless of income or background. We are at the leading-edge of developing innovative solutions to support parents, families and professionals to offer the highest quality of care and life opportunities to children from pre-conception to the third birthday. Since the formation of the charity in 2007, Best Beginnings has developed and successfully activated digital and non-digital support for parents and healthcare professionals across the UK. We are an ambitious charity and are pursuing a strategy for growth to ensure that our resources have the maximum reach and positive impact where help is most needed in the UK and internationally.

The Role

This is a newly created opportunity for you to support all aspects of bid writing, grant applications, and responding to tenders at Best Beginnings. This will include collaborating with colleagues and partners to develop and execute engaging applications to a range of funders to support our work.

You will be a confident writer, able to communicate the value of our work clearly and succinctly, ideally with previous experience writing and/or assisting with grant and bid proposals. Experience in the charity sector is not essential but highly desired.

Working with the Head of Fundraising, you will focus on identifying new funding opportunities, planning approaches, gathering information, and writing high quality, compelling applications, to generate additional income for us to further develop our services.
You will also be identifying appropriate funding sources for organisations we support, providing them with guidance on writing high quality applications, planning their year, and developing a suite of resources with the communications team to enable this.

You will need experience of writing content and developing applications to large and small funding bodies. You will be able to evidence securing income and be skilled in presenting complex project information in a clear and engaging way.
