Every year RSTMH provides small grants of up to £5,000 each to early career researchers and global health professionals around the world, to try and ensure that the pipeline of research, translation, implementation and policy work on global health is full of innovative plans and projects. We have recently grown our programme and are able to provide more grants, and this may grow even more in the coming weeks.

To help us manage this programme we’re looking for an experienced Grants Manager who can manage all aspects of the programme from marketing through assessment, to award, ongoing communications and monitoring and evaluation.

RSTMH is a small team so the candidate needs to be happy to work alone, and also be an effective team player. They should be equally comfortable leading partner relationships, developing marketing information, writing a communications strategy, advising potential grantees on terms and conditions, and running reports on the online submissions platform.  The candidate needs to be responsible for the programme budget on behalf of RSTMH and our funding partners, and have excellent project management and relationship building skills.

Summary of the role

  • Taking ultimate responsibility for the delivery of the RSTMH small grants programme, including relationships with our grant funding partners
  • Developing and overseeing processes to streamline the marketing, assessment and delivery of grants to successful applicants
  • Manage the communications and oversee relationships with our global assessors who volunteer their time to help assess the small grant applications
  • Improve communications, monitoring and evaluation strategies to optimise the programme and its longer term outcomes
  • Ensuring the grants are an integral part of RSTMH, reflecting and complementing wider organisational activity and strategy
