Description: 
What is this The A Project that's hiring?

The A Project is a non-governmental organization that envisions a society where sexuality and mental health of cis and trans women, trans men, and gender non-conforming people are reclaimed, cared for, respected, recognized in their diversities, and not utilized against them.

We aim to create platforms that reaffirm agency and autonomy in sexuality and mental health, while advancing, through practice and theory, a political discourse around sexual, reproductive, and mental health and seeking alternatives to counteract medical patriarchy's restrictive and reductive approaches towards all bodies, especially those of cis and trans women, trans men, and gender non-conforming people in Lebanon.

Who makes up The A Project?

The A Project, consisting of cis and trans women, trans men, and gender non-conforming, has a small staff team and a big membership base.

Are you the Grants, Finance, and M&E Manager we are looking for?

The Grants, Finance, and M&E Manager is a full-time position, providing core technical and administrative leadership and sustainability in the areas of financial management and grants management for the program. This position plays a critical role in sustaining as well as monitoring and evaluating the progress and impact of The A Project’s programs throughout the year. The position holder will participate in grants proposal writing, development, and reporting. They will also provide guidance and practical support to the project coordinators on all matters related to accounts payable, cost allocation, monthly reporting, payroll, budget preparation, grants management contract and subcontract management, and compliance.

We are especially interested in someone who has the above-mentioned skills and experience, as well as an interest in working on gender justice and reproductive and sexual health rights. For the grant proposal writing segment of this job opportunity, the applicant should have strong writing skills and values work on advancing sexual and reproductive health and rights. Do mention in your cover letter if you have work or volunteer experience in women's rights work. Experience in grants management and monitoring and evaluation is more of an interest to us than the finance segment, as the finance segment is mostly data entry to be handed to an accountant – and that aspect can be learned if the applicant has strong numeracy and organization skills.
