Grants Manager, Increasing Citizen Demand for Accountable and Transparent Service Delivery in the Health Sector, Zambia


PATH is an international organization that drives transformative innovation to save lives and improve health, especially among women and children. We accelerate innovation across five platforms—vaccines, drugs, diagnostics, devices, and system and service innovations—that harness our entrepreneurial insight, scientific and public health expertise, and passion for health equity. By mobilizing partners around the world, we take innovation to scale, working alongside countries primarily in Africa and Asia to tackle their greatest health needs. Together, we deliver measurable results that disrupt the cycle of poor health.

Advocacy to accelerate health impact: Strong political champions and evidence-based policies are critical to ensure that health is within reach for everyone. It’s not enough to create solutions to global health problems. The global health community must secure the support of decision-makers, policymakers, and others to commit resources and enact policies that bring these solutions to scale—to strengthen health systems, improve health, and save lives.

Path is seeking a Grants Manager for an upcoming multi-year USAID-funded project. Activities will include enhancing citizens’ action based on basic facts on utilization and quality of services collected from the communities themselves. It will include improving upon or developing community-based monitoring tools such as report cards, social contracts, and action plans. The program will seek to strengthen existing local governance social structures such, as the neighborhood health committees, health advisory committees, and/or safe-motherhood action groups. Health service providers under the Ministry of Community Development, Mother, and Child Health will also be involved to improve and strengthen their engagement with community members.

The Grants Manager will manage all aspects of the grants program under this project and will be responsible for the following key activities:

  • Develop and manage grants program in close communication with Path headquarters.
  • Provide support to USAID in managing direct grants.
  • Ensure full compliance with USAID and Government of Zambia regulations.
  • Negotiate and draft agreements with grantees and sub-contractors.
  • Provide financial and administrative oversight of sub-grantees and sub-contractors and provide required reporting.
  • Provide training and technical support to sub-grantee in grant management and reporting.
  • Liaise with Path financial, compliance and field operations teams.

Required Skills

  • Strong interpersonal skills, ability to interact effectively with CSOs, USAID, other relevant stakeholders and associated program personnel.
  • Strong knowledge of Zambian legislation, regulations, and procedures applicable to donor programs.
  • Professional proficiency in English required.
Required Experience

A degree in accounting, finance, or related field is required. Five or more years of experience in managing USAID grants program; knowledge of applicable USAID regulations and procedures. Demonstrated experience with budget preparation, financial management and reporting.

Zambian citizens are strongly encouraged to apply.
