ABOUT IGNITA

The work of Ignita includes pooled funding mechanisms, fiscal sponsorships, shared governance approaches, participatory grantmaking and learning communities. The team oversees a range of partnerships with organisations fiscally hosted at Women Win. We champion transformative philanthropy by disrupting the philanthropic sector to acknowledge and challenge unequal power structures. We strengthen movements and network building by fostering trust-based connections and collaborations that drive meaningful and collective change. 

POSITION SUMMARY

The Ignita Programme Coordinator is a core team member within the Ignita team, and will be responsible for streamlining and coordinating administration, operations and grantmaking processes between internal and external teams including fiscal sponsorship partners. This role requires someone who is organised, a great communicator and enjoys problem solving.

As part of the Ignita team, this role works with a range of diverse stakeholders including local partners and funders. Candidates must demonstrate a strong affinity with feminist movements and interest and experience that align with the core functions of this role. We will prioritise candidates that have multi-sector experience, show adaptability and authenticity.  

This is an exciting position within a growing portfolio of work, which requires flexibility, creativity, initiative, and a passion for learning. We are looking for someone who is passionate about innovating grantmaking and administrative processes to improve efficiencies. The Ignita Programmes Coordinator reports to the Ignita Programmes Manager and will work closely with the Ignita and FinOps teams and wider Women Win team members.
