Job Description

The Role:

This role supports all ActionAid International countries to adopt good grant management and compliance practices. The role also works closely to support the Grants Compliance & Assurance Lead to improve global systems, practices, policies, and tools on grant compliance and cost recovery, including positioning ourselves to manage the increased compliance risk that comes with USAID and other high risk donor funding. Therefore, this role will be the key global standard setting advisor for the Federation on restricted funding grant management process and practice and will require the ability to influence and negotiate with other functional teams and senior stakeholders to encourage change management across the Federation as well as development of a strong capacity building and learning programme around grant management. This is a key priority role, given the increased levels of restricted income in the Federation. Bringing external best practice into the organisation will also be important.

This role will work to strengthen the financial sustainability across ActionAid International countries, by supporting the full embedding of cost recovery best practice tools and techniques. This is critical to ensure the Federation can deliver ambitious and transformative projects which transfer power to rights holders, whilst effectively ensuring all project costs are recovered for AA and our partners.

The role will work alongside the Contract Management System Operations and Data Manager to ensure that the Contract Management System and related Handbook are upgraded to capture best practice and processes around the raising and management of restricted funds, and ensure this is translated to improved global practices, policies, and tools on grant management for the Federation.

Who we’re looking for: 

You must have practical experience of managing and advising on cost recovery and donor compliance best practice, based on a strong understanding of restricted funding donor requirements and experience of managing them through a donor grant or contract.

You must have experience working with global systems (particularly contract management systems), understanding how to use systems to strengthen practices, policies, and tools for the management of restricted grant compliance and cost recovery. Demonstrable experience working in a multicultural context / environment is necessary. Fluency in English is required.

You should also have strong commitment to ActionAid’s values and ethos, including ActionAid’s feminist leadership principles.

What we offer:

ActionAid is committed to providing a welcoming, supportive workplace where we recognise a job well done, encourage close collaboration and sharing power, and where safeguarding standards and feminist leadership are exemplified everywhere. At ActionAid, you can look forward to a fair compensation package and a flexible working environment, including

  • A workplace that embraces intersectional feminist principles 
  • Generous maternity, paternity and adoption pay
