Assistant Director of Distribution

We Are Recruiting

Assistant Director of Distribution

Launched in November 2019, the National Emergencies Trust (NET) was set up to raise funds from the general public in the event of a domestic disaster or emergency. When a disaster hits, the Trust collaborates with charities and other bodies to raise and distribute money and support victims. The funds collected are distributed by local partners on the ground in the areas affected by the emergency event.


NET launched the Coronavirus Appeal on 18th March 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Supported by donations from corporates, charitable trusts and the public, the Appeal is allocating funds to community foundations across the UK to assist voluntary organisations doing vital work on the community frontline; from food banks and delivery services, to suicide prevention lines and mental health support.


NET is working as a central coordinating and facilitating body, working closely with and using the capacity of existing organisations, including British Red Cross, Just Giving, the members of UKCF, London Emergencies Trust and local authorities to achieve its fundraising and grant making objectives.


We are seeking a Head of Allocation who will work with NET management and Trustees to ensure that NET’s approach to allocating future appeal funds is equitable, agile, thorough and reflects the NET’s values.
