Regional grants manager (M/F) - Amman

Amman (Jordan) | Jordan

For more than 30 years, Médecins du Monde, a campaigning medical organisation committed to international solidarity, has been caring for the most vulnerable populations at home and abroad. It has continued to highlight obstacles that exist in accessing health care and has secured sustainable improvements in health-for-all policies.

Those working for this independent organisation do not solely dispense care and treatment but condemn violations of human dignity and rights and fight to improve matters for populations living in precarious situations.

MdM currently works in more than 40 countries across all continents where it focuses on 5 priority areas: emergency and crisis, sexual and reproductive health, harm reduction, migrants and displaced populations (health rights), health and environment.

MdM strategy to support Syrian population is based on a regional approach around 3 main axes:

  • Support to refugee populations: primary, sexual and reproductive health and mental health care for Syrian refugees in neighboring countries through MdM clinics and support to local organizations.

  • Support to existing health facilities in Syria: emergency medical assistance to Syrian population in Syria through the support of networks of Syrian doctors or existing health facilities.

  • Support to displaced populations in Iraq and Syria: primary and sexual and reproductive health services for internal displaced populations through MdM Clinics and Mobile Clinics in camps and urban settings.

In Iraq, MdM is targeting IDPs in the Kurdistan region, Sinjar and Kirkuk governorate through mobile and fixed clinics supporting local partners and the Ministry of Health.

To support MdM response and the country missions in implementing and monitoring the activities, a Regional Representation Office based in Amman has been set up in 2013. In June 2016, the decision has been taken to promote this office into a full decentralized unit, in order to reinforce the support provided to the country mission as well as decentralize some support services in order to increase the quality of the services provided.

Under the direct supervision of the head of regional unit in Amman, you will be in charge of the report and proposal coordination and the MoU development with local partners and MdM network members.

Your main responsibilities are to :

-Adapt the Regional Grants Tracker to each grant need (reporting deadlines, audit timeframe when applicable, evaluation, etc.) and liaise with the Public and Institutional Funding Unit and the Financial Direction

-Provide timelines and ensure timely submission of proposals and reports to RO/HQ/MdM members/donors

-Merge contributions from the various missions into joint proposals, amendments and reports
