Current Job openings


The Grants Manager executes Water For People’s approach to the vital function of grant management by providing critical input to the maturation and implementation of the organization’s grants management function.

The Grants Manager will develop Water For People’s capacity to cultivate and retain high level donor relationships by supporting some of the organization’s top tier donors and largest grants. Serving as an integral role within Donor Impact, this position will additionally contribute to the team’s achievement of annual revenue goals through close collaboration with other team members on grant management – building on our successes and identifying new strategies that will allow us to make even more impact and achieve our organizational strategic objectives. This includes regular participation in team strategic sessions, annual planning and budgeting, cross-functional knowledge sharing, and the cultivation of strong cooperative ties across teams.


The Director of Global Monitoring and Strategic Accountability leads the team responsible for the programmatic monitoring, evaluation and learning (MEL) processes that drives adaptive planning and results in organizational accountability for achievement of our mission and strategic targets.  This includes oversight of the global MEL framework, in addition to development and implementation of the Results Framework for Water For People’s ambitious Destination 2030 strategy and alliance. The Director of Global Monitoring and Strategic Accountability also ensures technical support is provided to country programs on MEL activities as the organization continues to decentralize MEL functions and as country teams prioritize the strengthening of national water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) monitoring systems. As the organization grows, it is also essential for this position to continually identify opportunities for increased efficiency, sustainability, and scalability of the MEL functions.
