Head of Trusts and Foundations The Smallpeice Trust
The Smallpeice Trust is changing the futures of young people across the UK as they support and develop their skills and ideas within STEM. To ensure more young people are given this opportunity, they are recruiting a Head of Trusts and Foundations to grow income and capitalise on new funding opportunities.
The Smallpeice Trust was founded in 1966 by Dr. Cosby D P Smallpeice – a brilliant engineer who invented the Smallpeice Lathe. Following his success, Dr. Smallpeice ploughed £1.6m of his personal fortune into setting up The Smallpeice Trust to give young people the support they need to bring their big ideas to life through science, technology, engineering, and maths (STEM).
At The Smallpeice Trust, we believe anything is possible when you know how. That’s why we’re here to give young people everything they need to fuel their passion for engineering, helping to make their big ideas a reality. All with the help of charities, parents, teachers, universities, and corporate partners backing them all the way.
The Smallpeice Trust is supported by a wide range of national and international companies, the Armed Forces, Institutions, Livery Companies, educational and other charities, and universities. Other Smallpeice partners including BAE Systems, Royal Navy, RAF, McLaren Racing Engage, Virgin Atlantic, Thales, HS2 Ltd and the ERA Foundation.
