Senior Grants and Contracts Manager

Job Type

Full Time




9159 Brookville Road
Silver Spring
United States



A Wider Circle is looking for an individual who is deeply committed to the eradication of poverty and who is truly looking for more than a job - a person who has the desire and drive to help lead a national movement.

The Senior Grants & Contracts Manager will work with our Director of Grants & Contracts to elevate our grant writing efforts and advance the mission of the organization. The demand for A Wider Circle's services grew significantly in 2017, and this position is being created to help us grow our resources in response to this demand.

You will join a deeply committed marketing and development team that has grown the organization's resources every year. In fact, A Wider Circle has grown in every way since its founding in 2001. In the past few years, it has also significantly increased its collaborative work with local, regional, and national organizations focused on daily services and larger systemic change.

At the same time, we know there is much work to be done, and we look to 2018 to be a transformative year for our work and the overall movement to end poverty.

The successful candidate will have experience in grant writing and the development of other outreach and marketing materials and be comfortable reaching out to foundations, government grant officers, CSR managers, or the like. Experience in pursuing multi-year, seed, and large program funding is also important.

The Senior Grants & Contracts Manager will also engage in marketing efforts aimed at building a collaborative movement in the nation's capital region and across the country - a movement that will elevate poverty to the top of the priority list. This position is critical to ensuring a focus on necessary change and future systemic restructuring that will allow children and adults to live in neighborhoods characterized by opportunity rather than neglect.


We offer a generous benefits package, including health insurance, retirement, and other benefits.
