Grants Compliance Manager
NGO Jobs / UN Jobs Vacancy
Plan International is an independent development and humanitarian organisation that advances children’s rights and equality for girls.
We believe in the power and potential of every child, but this is often suppressed by poverty, violence, exclusion and discrimination and it’s girls who are most affected.
Working together with children, young people, our supporters and partners, we strive for a just world, tackling the root causes of the challenges facing girls and all vulnerable children.
We support children’s rights from birth until they reach adulthood. And we enable children to prepare for – and respond to – crises and adversity. We drive changes in practice and policy at local, national and global levels using our reach, experience and knowledge.
We have been building powerful partnerships for children for over 80 years and are now active in more than 70 countries.
As the Grants Compliance Manager, you will manage donor requirement compliance risk and ensure that Plan understands the operational, legal and financial implications of multilateral and bilateral grants contracts. The donor contract analysis carried out by the Grants Compliance Manager will inform the overall risk assessment of a particular grant opportunity and the decision whether to enter into a particular grant contract.
In this role you will support the efficient processing of all restricted sponsorship funding from Plan Canada, including managing the approvals process, ensuring the correct set up in Plan International’s financial and Monitoring & Evaluation systems and monitoring expenditure and reporting. You will also monitor changes in relevant laws of Country Office and National Office jurisdictions to assess the impact these have on Plan International’s ability to comply with donor requirements.**
We are looking to recruit an organised individual who has experience of working in International NGOs with their bi-lateral and multi-lateral donors. You will have experience in building and consolidating cross-functional relationships within wider teams and stakeholders in complex organisations and you will have the ability to manage senior stakeholders. You will also have demonstrable experience in reviewing grant contracts and risk assessments.
To be successful in this role you will have strong detailed analytical and strategic thinking capabilities with the ability to identify critical issues from large masses of information. You will work well with colleagues from across Plan departments and entities and you will have a strong organisational understanding, allowing you to comprehend how multiple moving parts piece together.
