The Small Grants Scoping and Design Consultant will support the “Support to the Africa-led Movement (ALM) to end Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting” programme to refine and finalise the design of its small grants mechanism to reflect the needs and local context of potential grantees; the specific objectives of the programme; and to take on board the most recent best practices, learning and evidence from comparable small grants initiatives

The objective of this assignment is to support the programme to refine and finalise the design of the small grants mechanism in a way that supports partners to deliver effectively, does not create unnecessary additional burdens on them, and manages key risks. The consultant will also advise the programme on how to support interim granting activities. This will be achieved by:

  • Undertaking a scoping exercise that will enable us to:
  1. Understand the diverse priorities, needs and ambitions of potential grantees (a range of activists (including girls and young women), grassroots organisations, women’s networks etc.) that we aim to support and collaborate with.
  2. Identify grassroot organizations with existing, community-focused activities that are strategically aligned with the programme, that we can fund directly in the short term (prior to the grants mechanism launching in full)
  • Synthesising recommendations, good granting practices and evidence from comparable grant-making initiatives, learning from those who have designed and led this kind of grants mechanism before (e.g. those promoting locally led social change, with a focus on women and girls’ rights)
  • Leading a consultative design process to refine and finalise the grants mechanism, drawing on steps (a) and (b)
  • Updating and revising the grants strategy and funding manual to reflect the agreed re-design

Person specification: 

To succeed in this role, you will have:

  • Relevant professional experience in designing consultative grant mechanisms within international development.
  • Strong conceptual and research/analytical skills with the ability to quickly analyze data and information from different sources and produce coherent reports
  • Strong knowledge of good granting practices in the social change, women and girls’ rights sectors
  • Exceptional written and oral communication skills, with strong demonstrated ability to convey complex ideas in a clear, coherent, and lively style
  • Ability to work independently, operate under pressure, manage multiple tasks, deliver time sensitive, high-quality work, and meet team objectives
