We are hiring: Grants Operations Manager

Grants Operations Manager – AmplifyChange

Full Time 37.5 hours/week
Bath, UK (currently hybrid working)
£35,000 – £40,000 Depending on Experience


AmplifyChange is a not-for-profit organisation that supports local organisations to improve sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) in their communities. We mainly work in Africa and South Asia.

Our mission is to be a global leader in supporting grassroots organisations and building stronger, more inclusive movements for SRHR for all, especially in challenging contexts.

While AmplifyChange accepts grant applications on a competitive basis to make grants accessible to all, our ethos is to support applicants and grantee partners to succeed, and to facilitate access to longer-term and more predictable funding to well performing groups. AmplifyChange is agile, lean and light touch, without compromising quality and the ability to provide personalised support to its grantee partners.

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, concurrent funding rounds and to oversee our newly introduced grants management system.

The Grants Operations Manager has responsibility for the smooth running of the grant management process, from funding call preparation, processing and evaluation of applications through to Board approval, to overseeing live grants and grant close out. Fluency in written and spoken French is essential for this role due to the number of grant holders based in Francophone Africa.

The role will work closely with team members in the UK and overseas, including our Operations Team, our Grants Support Team, our Fiduciary Risk Team and external suppliers, to ensure a smooth running of the grant management process and -system.

You will need to have:

  • Educated to degree level or equivalent
  • Minimum of 5 years’ experience in grant management, project management or operations management
  • Experienced user of grants management software
  • Fluency in written and spoken English and French
  • Ability to build effective working relationships with team members of diverse backgrounds and expertise, both in person and virtual
  • Sensitivity to, and support for, the values and general aims of AmplifyChange
