Are you a strong communicator with an eye for detail? Do you enjoy solving problems? Would you like to develop your skills and contribute to the improvement of processes?
We are looking to recruit a Grants Officer to join our growing Finance & Grants team, conducting due diligence and contracting for the grants we issue through several programme calls each year. There will also be opportunities for the successful candidate to contribute to capacity-building work with our grantees.
We’re a global charity, working to find solutions to complex humanitarian problems through research and innovation. We fund and support work that goes on to shape the way in which people across the world are supported during a crisis.
We are based in London and Cardiff but our roles have a global reach. As an established and respected part of the humanitarian community, we work closely and meaningfully with our fellow networks and actors to make change happen.
To be successful, you will have a proven interest in the humanitarian or development sectors, ideally demonstrated through academic qualifications and/or paid or voluntary work. You will have excellent organisational skills and attention to detail and be able to propose practical solutions which take competing priorities into account. The ability to communicate effectively with a wide range of people in different organisations and cultures is also essential. Experience of working with institutional and non-institutional donors, managing complex stakeholder relationships, or conducting contracting, due diligence or auditing, would be an advantage, as would awareness of best practice with regard to organisational policies in the humanitarian/development sector.
If you are passionate about supporting people affected by crises and want to be part of an organisation that creates positive change in the humanitarian sector, and you strongly believe you can contribute, then join us and we’ll give you every opportunity to succeed.
We are committed to the safeguarding and protection of vulnerable people in our work. This post is subject to a range of vetting checks including a criminal records disclosure.
Elrha recognises the positive value of diversity and promotes equality. We welcome and encourage job applications from people of all backgrounds. We particularly welcome applications from disabled and Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) candidates, as BAME and disabled people are currently under-represented throughout our work. We are committed to improving employment opportunities for ethnic minorities. We also welcome applications from LGB and Trans, and non-binary candidates.
Except in exceptional circumstances, the role will be appointed at the start of the salary band advertised. This allows for incremental progression within the role and movement up the scale.
