Multi-Service Center is seeking a Grants Specialist or Manager to join our two-person grants team who wants to help us build a future without poverty. The grants team works together to achieve funding goals to support programs that allow MSC to provide resources to help people meet their basic needs and thrive. In this position, you would be responsible for generating operating and program funds through grant research and writing, reporting functions associated with grants, and would actively participate in agency budgeting and strategic planning. This is a full-time, exempt position based out of our office in Federal Way, Washington. During the pandemic, this position is primarily remote work, and there may be flexibility to continue on a partially remote basis post-pandemic.

Why work at Multi-Service Center (MSC)?

Your work would have a direct impact on helping people in our community reduce barriers to becoming economically stable. MSC’s mission is to build a future without poverty by creating pathways to help, hope and dignity for our neighbors. At MSC, we believe that diversity, equity, and inclusion drives success for our clients, community, and employees and makes us better able to serve our clients. MSC is stronger as a team when we welcome diverse employees, perspectives, experiences and approaches to foster a stronger, smarter, and more informed workplace.

MSC strives to create an environment where employees are valued, empowered to positively support our mission, and recognized for their individual and team contributions. MSC desires to create a workplace that reflects the communities we serve and that building a truly inclusive culture is essential for all our employees to bring their authentic, whole selves to work and experience a sense of belonging and support.

What we are looking for in a candidate for this position.

This position requires the ability to share MSC’s story in a way that is accurate and compelling, so a few of the skills we are looking for in a candidate include attention to detail, good communication skills, and a passion for writing and story-telling. You will need to be able to understand and follow specific directions on grant applications and reporting requirements. You may also need the ability to prioritize and work within tight deadlines. We prefer a candidate who has experience with grant writing or fundraising, and candidates selected for an interview will be asked to provide a writing sample. You will also need to possess technology skills that will allow you to skillfully navigate Excel, Word, Adobe and other website applications. While a Bachelor’s degree is preferred, it is not required and other experience will be considered.
