Job description

The Programme Partnerships department is looking for a Programme Manager (PM), who will act as the focal point in the interaction between Country Offices and Save the Children UK (SCUK), supporting the delivery and quality of in-country programmes.

In this occasion, we are looking to cover one vacant PM position by end of February 2020. However, as result of upcoming changes in the department, we are expecting additional Programme Manager positions will be available in March/April 2021. We encourage individuals who are interested in this role to apply now, as we will identify suitable candidates for future PM vacancies through this current recruitment process

As Programme Manager, you will oversee the implementation of SCUK-funded programming, in coordination with the Country Offices, acting as a donor liaison for key SCUK donors - institutional and/ or non-institutional including strategic corporate partnerships. You will be responsible for monitoring, ensuring donor compliance and providing quality assurance for projects and grants/contracts within specific assigned countries, as well as managing related risks. You will lead on the delivery of institutional and non-institutional proposals and reports, as well as evaluations and audits.

Your remit will either be region-based or programme-based, and it will vary over time, in line with changes and demands in SCUK’s overall international programmes funding portfolio. This role involves the direct management of programmes and related awards implemented in specific Country Offices or in support of strategic corporate donor(s). In addition, you will:

  • Build strong and effective relationships with key staff and counterparts in Country Offices and coordinate the provision of appropriate support for the effective delivery of quality programmes.
  • Contribute to the development of the overall portfolio, in support of Country Strategic Plans and donor partnership strategies.
  • Develop a strong knowledge of donors/ partners priorities and interests in the country(ies) under your responsibility. Develop and maintain relevant donor relationships, serving as the focal point for HQ-level donor staff, for the countries, programmes or partnerships under your portfolio. 

To be successful you will have extensive experience in project and grant/contract management, particularly while working in a country office, and you will be knowledgeable of institutional and non-institutional donor requirements. You will have significant experience of working in the international aid sector, with significant financial and reporting skills. You will also have:

  • Strong relationship development skills, particularly at a distance and with colleagues from different organisations, functions, and cultures.
  • Extensive experience working with institutional donors such as FCDO, UNICEF, OCHA, ECHO/EuropeAid, including proposal development and report writing, and / or experience working with non-institutional donors (corporate, trust & foundations, etc.)
  • A high degree of flexibility and adaptability to respond to changing needs and effectively address issues
  • Excellent attention to detail and organisational skills

Please make sure your cover letter explains how you meet these essential requirements.

We particularly welcome applications from people with disabilities, Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds, LGBT+ and from different socio-economic and educational backgrounds. 

Please note - whilst this role is advertised as office based, Save The Children UK will remain a remote-working organisation until at least 30 June 2021.
