The National Endowment for Democracy (NED), a federally funded, private, nonprofit grantmaking organization that works to support freedom around the world, seeks multiple Managing Grants Officers for each (Asia, Eurasia, MENA) region. The positions are based in Washington, D.C.
The Managing Grants Officers are the first-level supervisors of the department. They supervise and mentor Grants Officers and Senior Grants Officers in addition to providing hands-on cradle-to-grave management of discretionary grant portfolios, including those in high risk and/or complex environments. They are distinguished from Senior Grants Officers by the extent of their demonstrated professional judgment and high knowledge level, proficiency with grants management concepts, supervisory responsibilities, and emerging leadership skills. Managing Grants Officers work closely with their peer colleagues in Regional Program and Compliance to provide effective and collaborative due diligence and oversight of grant programs, as well as taking on additional responsibilities and special tasks as assigned to provide a supporting role to their Principals.
