This is an exciting opportunity to join the team of the City of London Corporation’s charitable funder, City Bridge Trust (CBT), as a Funding Manager, to help us take forward and deliver our funding strategy.

CBT is a vibrant, innovative funder supporting charitable activity across London.  Our vision is for London to be a city where everyone can thrive and we aim to reduce inequality and grow stronger, more resilient and thriving communities.  As a Funding Manager, you will make a significant contribution towards the successful delivery of this strategy.


We are working towards becoming a values-led learning organisation.  You will play an important role in helping us to continue to adapt at pace as we aim to address London’s new challenges and heightened inequalities as a result of the Covid-19 crisis.  

You will assess applications to CBT for charitable support to tackle inequality in London: considering the potential to increase impact through the Trust’s evolving ‘Funder Plus’ offer and implementing the Trust’s ‘total assets approach’ to use the full range of funding, knowledge, networks and expertise available through CBT and the City of London Corporation; and make recommendations to Members to guide their funding decisions. 

You will manage an interesting and diverse portfolio of charitable funding agreements and ensure that the monitoring and evaluation are carried out; distilling any learning from the portfolio in line with the Trust’s Learning and Impact strategy. 

Closing date: 12 noon on 23 July 2021.

Interviews will be held week commencing 2 August 2021.

The CBT team works flexibly and encourages applications on the basis of job share. One of our key priorities is to build a more inclusive team and we welcome applications from communities not currently well represented in the funding sector.
