We are hiring!
Posted 03/09/2018 : By: Alice Goodrich
Finance & Appraisal Officer – LEADER Programme
Fixed term contract / secondment opportunity until 31 May 2019
This is an exciting opportunity to support the delivery of significant European grant funding across Norfolk and north Suffolk over the next eight months. We are looking for two people with solid experience in assessing grant applications for European funds, and experience in processing claims against European requirements. An investigative approach is an advantage because you will make recommendations for awarding a grant or paying a claim based on sound evidence. You also need to produce work of an excellent standard within tight timescales.
The post holders will have three main duties:
1. Appraise project applications on the basis of the European Union programme eligibility and selection criteria, including assessing the financial viability and track record of the applicant. Present results of appraisal to the Local Action Group.
2. Appraise and process project claims for payment and monitor financial progress against stated milestones. Checking against European Union eligible spend regulations.
3. Monitor and report on the programme budget and spending.
All the grant funding the LAGs administer is expected to contribute to the economic health of the local area. Applicants should therefore have experience of economic development, multi-European grant funding programmes, and financial assessment of private businesses.
If you would like to discuss this post in confidence, please contact Andy Thorpe (Local Action Group Manager) 01603 222904
Closing date: 11 September
