Funding and Partnerships Manager (Maternity Cover - 12 months), Glasgow

Mary’s Meals is a global movement supported by people from all walks of life and we are focused on one goal – that every child receives a nutritious daily meal in a place of education. We continue to change the lives of 1,361,586 children who today will receive a Mary’s Meal. We offer more than a job, we offer the opportunity to support our movement in a dynamic, inclusive and values driven environment with a real focus on personal development.

We are delighted to be recruiting for a Funding & Partnerships Manager to join our growing team in Glasgow on a 12-month fixed term contract. Working as part of our Strategic Partnerships & Policy team, you will coordinate the work of the International funding and partnerships team to enhance the financial sustainability and growth of the Mary’s Meals movement.

Reporting to our Director of Strategic Partnerships & Policy, you will play a key role in supporting national affiliate funding relationship managers in major donor and partnership opportunities, to meet the needs of our existing donor base and capitalise on opportunities that arise.

Key duties include:

Leading on high quality proposal, report writing and applications in line with donor and organisational requirements
Management and coordination of the funding and partnerships team
Leading on the development and oversight of organisational systems and processes for the completion of funding proposals and reports

You’ll possess excellent proposal and report writing skills alongside being a great coach and leader. We’re very open to hearing from people who would prefer to work flexibly or part-time.

The role will be based at the Mary’s Meals International HQ in Glasgow and may require occasional travel within the UK.  You will work closely with team members across all our locations and with colleagues working in other parts of the organisation to meet the needs of our existing donor base and support the development of new relationships.  Your work will make a tangible difference to the lives of children in some of the world’s poorest communities.

Mary’s Meals is a values driven organisation, we believe in the innate goodness of people, respect the dignity of every human being and family life and believe in good stewardship of the resources entrusted to us. In line with our values, Mary’s Meals is fully committed to a culture of safeguarding.
