Senior Programme Donor Compliance Officer
Do you have experience of commercial and grant contracts? Are you a clear communicator?
Prospectus is delighted to be working with a leading international development organisation to recruit a Senior Programme Donor Compliance Officer to join their team. The ideal candidate will provide technical insight and guidance to their institutional and commercial funding programmes.
The Senior Programme Donor Compliance Officer will play a pivotal role as part of the business development team and the programme quality team. They will strive to embed robust donor compliance practice across both areas and will be a lynchpin throughout processes to ensure continuity from proposal to implementation, whilst still recognising the bespoke nature of each drive. The right candidate will monitor donor trends, work closely with the BD specialists to assess the suitability of new opportunities, and generally ensure that all due diligence is completed to a high standard. They will also be an active member throughout the process from tender and proposal development to the project start up and management process. They will be the champion of donor regulations and will be key in providing focus on emerging financial, contractual and compliance changes.
The successful candidate will possess a comprehensive understanding and knowledge of donor requirements and commercial contract development within international development. They will ideally have an exposure to institutional donors and have a significant track record of contract and financial management, in particular as a partner or lead in a consortia. They will be comfortable gaining and tracking management information for analysis and reporting and have knowledge of grant and contract legalities. This role requires excellent analytical and negotiation skills and will need the Senior Programme Donor Compliance Officer to build a wide range of robust and productive relationships to ensure success. Although not essential, fluency in French or a second language and a willingness to travel is desirable.
