AmplifyChange is hiring: Grants Operations Manager

AmplifyChange makes grants of various sizes and duration to support the work of civil society organisations (CSOs) located in the Global South, advocating for improved sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR). Since its inception in 2014, AmplifyChange has awarded over 1,000 grants to CSOs working in SRHR and run almost 50 funding rounds processing approximately 6,500 eligible applications.

AmplifyChange registered as its own not-for-profit company in early 2020, with a well-developed five-year Strategy outlining its approach for the future.  Prior to the Fund becoming its own entity, it was managed as a contract by a consortium led by MannionDaniels based in Bath. To enable AmplifyChange to continue supporting CSOs through grant making, with limited impact on our efficiency, there will be a transitional period working with MannionDaniels over the next year.

About the role

AmplifyChange has an exciting new job opportunity for a Grants Operations Manager.  We are looking to recruit an experienced manager to oversee multiple funding rounds and the management of our diverse grant portfolio.  The Grants Operations Manager will have responsibility for the smooth running of the application process, from funding call preparation, oversight of live funding windows, and processing of applications through to Board approval.  They will support the day-to-day management of the grant cycle, ensuring grants are managed effectively once approved by the Board by working closely with multiple team members in the UK and overseas.  The role is a Bath-based position and will have day to day oversight of a team of Grants Officers who provide operational support across a portfolio of grants.  In addition, the position will work closely with MannionDaniels staff during the transitional period.

  • Minimum of 3 years’ experience of project, operational or logistics management
  • Ability to lead teams and set priorities and workplans

  • Good working knowledge of risk and performance management

Successful applicants will show a strong interest in the field of SRHR and sensitivities to the work of our grant holders.
