Lead Firebird Foundation’s mission to address social adversity, particularly helping children and women to live in a safer, fairer world.
Through grant-making and impact investment, Firebird supports projects that improve health, safety, justice, education and employment through a gender and racial equity lens. We are passionate about breaking the cycle of disadvantage, changing lives not just once but for generations to come.
The role of the Director is to work with the founder, trustees and associates to grow Firebird into a leading catalyst and enabler of change. They will be responsible for providing leadership and strategic direction, overseeing the foundation’s assets and deploying them over a range of grant and investment initiatives. Areas of focus include VAWG, the Justice System, Education, Employment and the Arts, primarily in the UK but with some initiatives overseas.
This is a varied and ambitious role, bringing an opportunity to make a big difference in traditional and innovative ways, collaborating with a diverse group of partners from grassroots activists to global funders.
