CARE is an international NGO with local staff and community partners in 100 countries. We create local solutions to poverty and inequality and we seek dignity for everyone every day and during times of crisis. These solutions have a broad range, from disaster response to food and nutrition to education and work for women and girls to healthy mothers and children. CARE puts women and girls at the center of everything we do because when they have equal access to resources, they lift their families and communities out of poverty. Our staff live where they work, which makes us effective at understanding the challenges they face. We’ve been doing this for 75 years, since World War II. It started with the world’s first CARE Package® of food for the post-war hungry in Europe. Our work today is as important as ever, we believe that poverty and inequality are historic injustices that we can end within a generation, for good. If you share our core beliefs: poverty is an injustice; poverty is solvable; and together, we have the power to end it, join us, and Fight with CARE.

CARE is seeking a Grants and Finance Manager to provide financial management support to the US Programs and Policy Department as well as grant management support for the Programming team within that department. The GFM supports CARE's newly established US Programs and Policy Department whose dual mandate is 1) to work with partners to reduce poverty and social injustice within the U.S. through both programs and policy advocacy as well as 2) to influence USG policies and programs (including US foreign assistance) in support of efforts to save lives and fight extreme poverty outside the U.S.
The position is responsible for developing and maintaining effective systems for managing an annual budget of $5 million+ spread across several accounts including multiple grants, workstreams and reporting requirements. Using CARE's financial systems as well as our departmental management systems, this responsibility includes creating frequent BVA and other spending update reports; calculating spending vs. budget projections; updating grant and budget managers on spending trends; updating shared service center, Finance Dept and other colleagues outside of the department on our spending trends, changes and financial health; providing frequent analysis of financial health both for broad accounts and specific grants. This position will also work closely with individual budget and grant managers as a thought-partner in problem solving for budget challenges as well as ensuring internal and donor budget requirements are adequately met and necessary processes for setting up, closing out, and adjusting budgets are followed.
This position will report to the Senior Director of US Government Advocacy, which manages the overall departmental budget in consultation with the Associate Vice President for Supporter Engagement and with final sign off from the Vice President of the US Programs and Policy Department.
