Job Description for Grants Manager
Grants managers generally work in nonprofit and academic organizations, since the job is focused on generating grant funding for research and/or nonprofit work. As the name implies, a grants manager works with internal staff to determine funding needs and how funds will be - and are being - used; they also work with external organizations such as foundations and government agencies to acquire funding.Read More...
The job requires strong writing skills, since most grant applications require in-depth descriptions (including the proposed use of the funds). This position also requires strong accounting and finance skills, since a grant manager at a nonprofit may also have to handle auditing and bookkeeping to ensure grant money is properly spent. At an academic institution or larger nonprofit, these roles may be split between separate finance and funding personnel; at a smaller non-profit, these functions are generally merged into a single grant manager role.
A grant manager generally work entirely in the office setting and rarely travels to the granting institution to deliver the proposal. Usually, the grant manager works with the internal team and delivers the proposal via mail or email to the grant foundation. These professionals typically work during regular business hours, although overtime might be required, especially as deadlines approach.
A bachelor's degree is generally the minimum educational requirement for this position. Previous experience in grants and grant writing is generally needed as well. In addition to strong writing, accounting, and finance skills, grant managers should be excellent communicators who work well under deadlines. (Copyright 2019 PayScale.com)
