MCS Charitable Foundation is an independent UK-wide charity working to accelerate the adoption of renewable energy and low carbon technologies. Homes and buildings account for around 30% of the UK’s carbon emissions so our sector has a crucial role to play in the drive for net zero. As a Charity with strong links to government, industry and the NGO sector, we have a leading role to play in driving that change.

MCS Charitable Foundation is seeking a Grants and Innovation Manager to run and grow its grants programme, playing a leading role in supporting and shaping innovation in cross-sector organisations working for net zero carbon in homes and communities.

The Grants and Innovation Manager is a new position that will take responsibility for the management and development of the Foundation’s grants programme, as well as playing a pivotal role in co-ordinating and communicating innovative work across green sector organisations.

The role involves leading the assessment of grant applications, managing the grant oversight and evaluation process, and leading regular reviews of the grant programme criteria. In addition, the postholder will work to grow the impact and scale of the grants programme through building relationships with other funders and playing a ‘match-making’ role in the wider sector through sharing good practice and helping develop and drive innovative ideas.
