Hello we would love to have you come aboard.
Grant Writer Assistants generally work in nonprofit and academic organizations, since the job is focused on generating grant funding for research and/or nonprofit work. As the name implies, a grants manager works with internal staff to determine funding needs and how funds will be - and are being - used; they also work with external organizations such as foundations and government agencies to acquire funding.
The job requires strong writing skills, since most grant applications require in-depth descriptions (including the proposed use of the funds). This position also requires strong accounting and finance skills, since a grant manager at a nonprofit may also have to handle auditing and bookkeeping to ensure grant money is properly spent. At an academic institution or larger nonprofit, these roles may be split between separate finance and funding personnel; at a smaller non-profit, these functions are generally merged into a single grant manager role.
A bachelor's degree is appreciated but not requiremed for this position. Previous experience in grants and grant writing is needed as well. In addition to strong writing, accounting, and finance skills, grant writer assistant should be excellent communicators who work well under deadlines.
