You don't need to run faster than the wind to work with us. But it would help if you like sport and see its power to end violence, discrimination and inequality for children and young people across the world. And if you do, you will be sharing the belief that our founding patron, Nelson Mandela, expressed at the launch of Laureus 21 years ago:
“Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than governments in breaking down racial barriers. It laughs in the face of all types of discrimination.”
As a key member of Laureus' programmes team, you will be responsible for planning and implementing a portfolio of impactful programmes across Africa, Asia, Latin America and Europe using sport as a vehicle for social change.
You will be responsible for managing a diverse sport for development portfolio, providing high level programme support, financial oversight, monitoring and evaluation technical expertise and capacity building support to our global implementing partners. This role will involve working closely with the wider Programmes and Development teams, aiming always to ensure Sport for Good makes progress towards its Vision.
In this role, you will:
- Develop and manage a caseload of grants
- Support the organisational development and strengthening of grant partners
- Participate in developing funding proposals for a range of different funders
- Help make sure that grantees comply with requirements and expectations
- Work closely with grantees to source good case stories about how they use the power of sport to change the lives of children and young people
