Job Advert

Please note this a fixed-term contract role for 9 months to cover maternity leave.

At Comic Relief we’re focused on bringing about real and lasting change by tackling the root causes of poverty and social injustice. Thanks to amazing support from GSK, in 2015 we  launched an exciting partnership focused on fighting malaria and improving health in some of the most malaria endemic countries in Africa and the Greater Mekong Sub-Region.

We are now looking for a grant making professional to help deliver this ambitious partnership by managing an exciting portfolio of grants; ensuring high quality MEL; and supporting compelling communications to show the impact of this funding to key stakeholders and the British public. This is a varied and exciting role which would suit a dynamic individual who is skilled at managing the detail of individual grants whilst also being able to step back and maintain oversight of the partnership’s global ambition - to increase understanding of a health system strengthening approach to malaria control and to inspire other partnerships to support global health and the Sustainable Development Goals. 

As Grants Manager you will deliver against our Grants Strategy by ensuring efficient grant making and management as well as effective monitoring, evaluation and learning across the GSK Partnership. You will support partnership grants including conducting monitoring visits, reviewing progress and providing considered feedback, advice and guidance to grantees. Important will be the ability to manage key relationships with GSK, ministry of health officials,  and other interested parties as well as delivering high quality stakeholder reporting.

You must have significant experience in international development with an emphasis on global health and have a good understanding of malaria and health system strengthening. You must have experience in grant making and programme management, including and be an expert user of project/grant management tools including Theory of Change, and MEL Planning and budgeting.

Comfortable building strategic relationships, you will excel at stakeholder management and be able to demonstrate exceptional analytical and decision making abilities. You will also possess strong communication, presentation and interpersonal skills.

If you have the skills and drive to help us deliver against this ambitious partnership apply online today!
