Role Purpose:

Reporting to the Chief Executive this role plays an important part in the provision of capital grants to our charity and social enterprise customers working in the youth sector as part of the Youth Investment Fund (YIF).

We are looking for someone who has previous experience of funding of property / real estate / asset acquisition or redevelopment, (which could be in the form of capital grants or lending) and managing a team of funding managers. This is a great opportunity for someone to be involved in making a difference to young people.

The Youth Investment Fund (YIF) is a £368 million fund created by the UK government to create, expand and improve youth facilities and services in England to drive positive outcomes for young people.

YIF is being delivered by a partnership between Social Investment Business, The Key Fund, National Youth Agency and Resonance.

Together, we aim to deliver grants for up to 300 facilities in selected eligible areas across England by 2025 that represent positive value for money, are environmentally sustainable and enable positive activities for young people aged 11–18 (up to 25 for young people with SEND).

This funding will drive value-for-money facilities that youth organisations can afford to sustain. Using innovative construction techniques, as well as supporting redevelopment projects that expand youth service provision, the YIF will achieve savings on facility running costs, so that resources can focus on activities that enrich young people’s lives.

It will support projects to level up youth provision, assessing and distributing grants so that local youth facilities and services can be the best they can be.

This role will be employed by Key Fund.

Key Fund Investments Limited (KFI) is a social enterprise that provides support and mainly modest amounts of funding and investment, to enable the development and growth of other community and social enterprises. It operates across the Midlands and North of England, particularly targeting those enterprises working in deprived communities or with marginalised groups of people.

The mission of KFI is to provide the ‘right kind of money at the right time’ for the development and growth of sustainable and impactful community and social enterprises that are unable to secure financial support from elsewhere.

Our values are:

Purpose: Committed to achieving our goals to bring about positive social impact.

Responsibility: Believe in what we do and expect the highest standards at all times.

Integrity: Demonstrate honesty and credibility making mutual trust possible.

Respect: Genuine in the support, empathy and care that we supply to individuals.

Courage: Challenge and to push the boundaries to open doors to the future.
