Hope and Homes for Children

Role overview

Senior Grants Partnerships Manager (Institutional Funding Lead)

As Senior Grants Partnerships Manager, you will provide leadership on all aspects of the institutional funding cycle. You will manage and grow Hope and Homes for Children’s grant relationship with Institutional Funders, including leading on donor relationship management and reporting for existing grants. You will identify new opportunities and lead and support the development of strong applications alongside country programme colleagues and members of the Marketing, Communications and Fundraising teams to secure new funding. 

To be successful in this role, you will have  excellent written and verbal communication skills, a supportive and collaborative approach and a genuine passion for our work. You will have a keen interest in development/child protection work, enjoy the process of compiling narrative and financial information about our projects and have the drive and commitment to deliver against deadlines. You will also be well organised, flexible, self-motivated and able to work autonomously and to thrive within a supportive culture which is solution-orientated and has integrity, courage and excellence at its heart. 

In return, we’ll provide you with the chance to have a real impact in a collaborative and ambitious organisation who are proud of what we do and the difference we make, and we will provide the opportunities and guidance to help you to develop and grow. 

If you believe every child belongs in a family, then join us as we consign orphanages to history.  

Role Requirements: 

You will have at least 5 years demonstrable experience of raising funds from the FCDO or other similar institutional funders including grant management and proposal development. You will have strong technical fundraising skills including the ability to work with logical frameworks and complex budgets. You will be an effective communicator, with experience of managing relationships with donors/clients/customers and have experience of working in a charity/fundraising environment.

About Hope and Homes for Children: 

Orphanages don’t protect children, they harm them. Put simply: the last thing an orphanage can provide is the first thing a child needs - someone to love them.  Science shows what we all know, that the bond between a child and their family is vital for their development. Decades of evidence proves that orphanages harm children, subjecting them to high levels of sexual and physical abuse, as well as extreme neglect.  Children always belong in families. They need protection, encouragement, play, laughter and love. They need somewhere to call home and someone to love them. You can help us make this a reality for children.
