Global Health Corps

About the organization

Global Health Corps is a leadership development organization focused on health equity. We ­­recruit daring and innovative university graduates and early- to mid-career professionals from around the world and pair them with amazing partner organizations and government agencies in Malawi, Rwanda, Uganda, and Zambia. Our fellows spend a year in their placement devoting their unstoppable energy to making the world a healthier place for all people, everywhere. Fellows come together five times a year for additional training, community building, leadership development, and mentorship to become audacious, resilient, and highly-networked leaders in global health. Each one of our fellows has the capacity to change the world – and many already are. We are grateful to work closely with our fellows to amplify their impact across health systems and across continents.

Duties

The Grants Coordinator plays a key role in the stewardship of prospective and existing grants, and is responsible for the effective management and control of grants obtained by Global Health Corps. This role will serve as the lead grant writer, primary administrative contact, and internal coordinator of all grant activities.

The Grants Coordinator proactively develops strong relationships with key staff across teams at GHC to ensure authentic and compelling proposals and reports, and facilitate appropriate grant submission, spending, and reporting, which contributes to high-quality stewardship with GHC funders.

The Grants Coordinator reports to the Director of Strategic Development, working with them to evaluate grant opportunities as part of the fundraising process, and to ensure strong proposal submissions and increased support for the organization. The Grants Coordinator will serve as a crucial member of GHC’s fundraising team, telling the story of the impact of great leadership on health equity and ensuring our movement is powered forward.
