At ActionAid International we help people to use their own power to fight poverty and injustice. Because that’s how real change happens – for women, for communities, for whole societies.

Institutional funding is ActionAid’s second largest income stream and with the Strategy 2028 we forecast clear opportunities and potential for ActionAid to scale up and diversify our institutional income through a fundraising model that is rooted in a partnership-based approach.

ActionAid is looking for a Grants and Compliance Coordinator to foster a more compliant and cohesive environment for managing institutional grants and to ensure accountability to our institutional donors. If you have extensive experience of managing institutional grants and setting up grant management systems and processes along with a good understanding of institutional donor rules and regulations, you could be part of the team at ActionAid International helping people to achieve long-term and sustainable change

You will be part of our EU Funding Team and wider Grants and Compliance Team tasked with working with ActionAid members to support effective grant management of a portfolio of EU (DEVCO) contracts and other institutional donors across ActionAid. This will involve setting up compliance monitoring systems, quality checking donor reports, providing guidance on the donor contractual rules and implementing internal controls to strengthen financial management and track donor income. You will also produce expenditure and compliance information as well as compliance and risk management reports. To achieve this, you will have the ability to contribute to the development and implementation of improved business development processes and operational guidelines to facilitate better management and accountability of institutional income. In addition, you will also contribute to key organisational projects such as cost-recovery or partner risk management. As the Grants and Compliance Coordinator, you will focus mainly on the EU Development Cooperation (DEVCO) but also on other institutional donors such as SDC, SIDA or UN agencies.

You must have a relevant diploma, degree and/or professional qualification in Business Studies, Economics or related field. This must be complemented by an excellent working knowledge of institutional donor rules, regulations, financial control procedures and risk management. You will be comfortable providing clear guidance on donor policies and procedures to other staff and will have been involved in setting up and managing donor compliance monitoring systems and business processes. You will be expert at financial reporting and audit preparation too.

If you have the strong communication and organisational skills and the passion to make a difference, we will be delighted to hear from you. Please send your CV and motivation cover letter by Sunday 18th November 2018 to hrworkspace@actionaid.org. Interviews are likely to be held w/c 3rd December 2018. You are requested to highlight in the motivation letter how specifically you meet the criteria for this role and to provide proof of eligibility to work in the UK.

If you do not meet all the essential criteria, please don’t apply as we only invite candidates for an interview if they meet all of the essential criteria listed on the job description. In addition, your application will be stronger if you meet at least some of the desirable criteria.

Due to high volumes of applications received, should you not have received feedback on your application within two weeks of the closing date, please consider your application unsuccessful. We reserve the right to withdraw any of our vacancies at any time.
