Thank you for your interest in the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF). This is a unique organisation which offers excellent job opportunities and real scope for personal and professional development.
Deciding on whether to apply for a new job, with new surroundings, new colleagues and a new role, raises lots of questions. To help you decide whether the HLF is for you we have put together some general information about the benefits of working for the Fund.
Carole Souter - Chief Executive
HLF is an equal opportunities employer and we encourage applications from a diverse range of people and backgrounds. We are an 'Investors in People' accredited organisation and continue to support the Double Tick Disability symbol. We have eleven regional and country offices throughout the UK and employ a wide range of skilled people in grant giving, development work, strategic and business development as well as those who work in communications, finance, IT, personnel and secretariat. We offer a competitive remuneration and benefits package and encourage an ethos of learning and development throughout the organisation.

There are 12 committees across the UK and they are all supported by our teams assessing applications locally. From time to time we recruit to find new Chairs and Members to replace those who have reached the end of their appointment period. Chairs and Members are normally appointed for three years in the first instance with potential for a second term.
Committees meet four times a year and make decisions on grant applications between £100,000 and just under £2million, provide advice to the Board on grants of over this amount, and maintain a strategic oversight of the small grants portfolio. Chairs and Members also have a role to play as representatives of, and advocates for, HLF in their country or region.
We do no have any vacancies at present across our committees. In the autumn we will begin recruiting for a new Committee Chair for London and a Committee Chair for the East Midlands, plus committee member vacancies across the East Midlands, London and South East England. To register an interest or for any queries email firstname.lastname@example.org.
