The Opportunity

The Head of Strategic Portfolio and Management in WCA is responsible for delivering an efficient and effective award management function. They will lead award management for all programmes, and develop best practice award management processes across West and Central Africa’s 9 Country Offices. The role has three main aspects to it: lead and develop the regional award management effort including compliance, staff capacity building and contributing to the development of best practices systems and processes.

The role offers a leadership opportunity for an individual highly experienced in grants management, business development and donor communications. It requires an individual capable of providing strategic leadership to a dynamic team, which is responsible for supporting ambitious fundraising targets as well as the management of a portfolio of awards currently valued at $490m in terms of life of award, and an annual budget of 200M.

The individual will be responsible for working with all other teams in the regional office/countries to develop the capacity of all staff as it pertains to Award Management, and provide on-the-job support to develop an awards management system that supports Save the Children quality standards.

The individual will play a strong coordination role both internally, across the Save the Children global network and with donors to identify funding opportunities. They will review high risk and value proposals that are reflective of Save the Children and donor strategic objectives, whilst also ensuring proposal budgets are accurately costed. During the implementation of regional projects, they will provide support and information to the technical, field-based and operations teams to deliver donor compliant awards (rules and regulations) and will ensure the consistent delivery of timely donor reports.

The maintenance of the Award Management System and day-to-day management of the team will be a primary function of the Head of Award Management in WCA. The individual will play a key role in the development of a culture that promotes the primacy of ensuring Save the Children delivers high quality programmes whilst always seeking to improve national staff capacity to take on roles currently held by international staff. In the event of a major humanitarian emergency, the role holder will be expected to work outside the normal role profile and be able to vary working hours accordingly.
