Grants and Fundraising Manager


, , ET

It’s hard to believe that today over 650 million people still don’t have clean, safe water and over 2.3 billion live without a toilet. The resulting diseases kill one child every minute.

WaterAid is looking for a Grants and Fundraising Manager to play a vital role in our mission to transform lives with safe water, sanitation and hygiene in the world’s poorest communities.

Working under the Director of Finance, the Grants and Fundraising Manager will be responsible for effective management of grants and leading on high quality fundraising initiatives to enable delivery of WaterAid’s strategy. This position leads on development of high quality, coherent and feasible fundraising proposals and budgets, working closely with colleagues in Ethiopia, WaterAid’s East Africa regional team, and federation members in the UK, USA, Canada, Sweden, India, Japan and Australia.

To be successful, you’ll need to have significant experience in planning, securing and managing funds from donors such as DFID, EC, USAID, DFAT, corporate donors, trusts, foundations and major donors, within an NGO or international organisation environment. You will also need to have experience of developing coherent and successful proposal narratives and log frames, including strong numerical ability to develop and review budgets.
