Contracts Funding Specialist (1832)
Job Description
Our vision, our mission, and our work are all defined by one goal – ending extreme poverty, whatever it takes. We believe that no one should have to live in fear that they won't have a home to sleep in or enough food to feed their children. For over 50 years we have been working with the world's poorest people to transform their lives.

Today we are a team of over 4,400 highly skilled and dedicated professionals from 50 countries who share an exceptional depth and diversity of experience. We want committed, values-driven staff to join our HQ team and are currently looking for a Contracts Specialist to be part of our Institutional Funding Support Unit (IFSU) within the International Programmes Department (IPD).

Concern offers in-house management and leadership courses and tailored organization-wide learning opportunities both in-person and online. We are committed to providing our staff with the skills needed to excel in their jobs. All employees are required to undertake training in equality, diversity and inclusion; the Code of Conduct; and safeguarding, along with any other training required for the role.

Our culture is values driven and friendly. A global engagement survey conducted in 2022, responded to by 3,577 of our staff, showed that 89% of our staff would happily recommend Concern as a great place to work and 94% are proud to tell people that they work for Concern.

This position can be based in either Dublin, Ireland, or London, UK.

If you join us, this is what you will be doing:

Leading on business development related to commercial contracts through the following activities:
