The Association of Charitable Foundations is expanding its workforce after carrying out a restructure.
The membership body is increasing the number of employees from 11 to 14 and has made some internal promotions as part of a restructure led by Carol Mack, who was promoted to chief executive just over a year ago.
A statement from the ACF said the restructure, which was conducted after an independent survey of members, would enable it to increase "both the capacity and ambition of its advocacy work on behalf of foundations".
The three new roles are director of membership, head of policy, and policy and communications intern.
The charity said it had promoted Liz Pepler, head of resources, and Keiran Goddard, head of external affairs, to directors of their respective divisions as part of the restructure, while Emma Hutchins was promoted to senior policy and communications officer.
There have been no redundancies as a result of the changes.
Mack said policy and external affairs would be an increasingly important part of what the ACF did.
"In making these changes, ACF is being responsive to members’ stated desire for us to further develop our policy voice, and I am confident that we are assembling the right personnel and the right structure to deliver what is being asked of us," she said.
"These changes make me confident that ACF is increasingly well placed to meet the challenges and opportunities of the future."
