About UJIA:

UJIA is dedicated to ensuring that young Jewish people in the UK forge a personal relationship with Israel, so that they have a strong sense of belonging to the Jewish people. This is our mission and vision. Our primary audience is young Jewish people aged 14-24; teenagers and young adults. Research shows us that this is when young people begin to form their own political and moral identities, and where older peer role models (madrichim) are crucially important in shaping those identities. Therefore, UJIA’s strategic focus is on the informal education sector and meaningful experiences in Israel; this is where madrichim and peer leadership play a key role.

Hours of Work:

The role is full time (34.5 hours per week). However, we will consider applications for 4 days a week for the right candidate.

In addition to grants, UJIA runs a capacity development programme for our grantees where we provide support and training in each of the three outcome areas. This includes direct training seminars, networking opportunities, peer forums, and thought leadership. This capacity development is led by UJIA’s Director of Collaborative Leadership who the Grants Manager will work closely with.
