Due to the urgency of this position, we will be short-listing on a continuous basis

JOB PURPOSE

Based at IRC office in London, the Grants Manager - Frameworks, will be responsible for the oversight and overall management of IRC’s existing Framework Agreements with key European donors. The Grant Manager – Frameworks will be responsible for managing the external relationship with the relevant European institutional donor contacts, and internally, as the key point of contact for the relationship within the IRC.
IRC-UK currently holds several framework agreements, and seeks to increase their scope for framework model agreements. The Grant Manager – Frameworks will lead the process of this type of funding through the effective management of existing framework partnerships. The position requires an experienced and motivated team player with a track record of managing strategic institutional donor relationships and managing teams.

The Grant Manager – Frameworks role is to ensure that there are joined-up approaches taken across IPT (Programme Development and Grants & Compliance) and that actions are taken forward. Thus the Grant Manager – Frameworks remit is one of coordination with all IPT’s functions to ensure the successful and effective management of existing Frameworks; and to increase the value and engagement from these to build new partnerships.

Substantial growth in portfolio with current donors now requires an increase in capacity and skill sets. The role will line manage a team of Regional Grants Officers/Assistants (RGOs/RGAs), and report to the Head of Grants and Compliance.
