In the LEGO Foundation we share our overall mission with the LEGO Group - to inspire and develop the builders of tomorrow. It demonstrates our shared heritage and is the guiding star for everything we do. The LEGO Foundation aims to build a future in which learning through play empowers children to become creative, engaged, lifelong learners. We are dedicated to re-defining play and re-imaging learning to ensure children build the broad set of skills they need to thrive and succeed.
Our three mutually reinforcing approaches - supporting programmes on the ground, building evidence and creating buy in - are aimed at bringing learning through play to millions of children around the world.
We now have an exciting opportunity for an experienced Grant Management Specialist to join our team and manager and administer grants globally. Reporting to the lead of the Grants and Administration department, this position will work on the operational side of the Foundation helping both the Systemic Impact and the LEGO Eco-System parts of the organisation set up and administer grants, contracts, and compliance. This role will especially support grants to the LEGO Group.
We are looking for grant management professionals that thrive on working with agility across multiple projects, share our vision, mission and values and bring the experience necessary to successfully manage and administer a robust grant making cycle involving grantees from across the world.
Your grant management experience has been gained in foundations, social enterprises or major international non-profits and you'll be adept at working across cultures and bring a highly flexible and collaborative approach.
Knowledge of early childhood development programming is desirable but not essential.
