AmplifyChange is hiring: 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, running almost 50 funding rounds and processing approximately 6,500 eligible applications.

AmplifyChange registered as a 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-based mechanism 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 an Operations Manager. We are looking to recruit an experienced manager to oversee all operational aspects of the new organisation in conjunction with the CEO and Operations Team, including the development and oversight of systems and processes.

The role is a Bath-based position and will have day to day oversight of a Grants Operations Manager, who will in turn manage a team of Grants Officers who provide operational support across a portfolio of grants. In addition, the position will work closely with the Technical and Operations Teams in AmplifyChange, and MannionDaniels staff during the transitional period.

You will need to have;

  • Minimum of 6 years’ experience of operational or project/contract management
  • Demonstrable knowledge of the commercial and operational aspects of managing an organisation, including procurement and supplier management
  • Experience of creating, implementing and analysing Standard Operating Procedures
  • A good understanding of the project/grant management cycle including set up, contracting, implementation, monitoring and evaluation

Successful applicants will show a strong interest in the field of SRHR and sensitivities to the work of our grant holders. Fluent French would be useful, but not essential, for this role due to the number of grant holders based in francophone Africa.
