We support children’s rights from birth until they reach adulthood. And we enable children to prepare for – and respond to – crises and adversity. We drive changes in practice and policy at local, national and global levels using our reach, experience and knowledge.
We have been building powerful partnerships for children for over 85 years, and are now active in more than 80 countries.

The role will maintain organization-wide adherence to meet internal and external grant management quality standards, donor guidelines, and related compliance processes, and management.
