Description of the Position

The Grants & Fundraising Manager will work with senior AEN management and the in-country Ugandan finance team in order to apply for and attain funding from a range of sources. As an established international development startup, this position will allow you to bring your own focus and skill set to a role ripe for growth.

Specific responsibilities include:

  • Applying for competitive grants
  • Researching and implementing creative fundraising methods
  • Growing the Grants & Fundraising team as appropriate
  • Communicating with other AEN members on a weekly basis
  • Setting realistic deadlines based on grant timelines and your availability
  • Communicating timely with AEN’s other sections when needed

An availability of 7-20 hours per week is needed for this position. The minimum time commitment is 3 months.


We are looking for highly motivated individuals focusing on entrepreneurship, international development or nonprofit management. Undergraduate/graduate students and college graduates with demonstrated interests or work experience are encouraged to apply.

Alongside exposure to grant writing and fundraising - preferably with successful grant applications already completed - the ideal candidate will possess excellent research, creativity, writing and interpersonal skills, with strong commitment to AEN’s values and mission.

Code & Conditions

An offer of assignment and a copy of the Conditions of Service and Code of Conduct will be issued to the successful candidate. He or she will receive training before the work officially starts.
