Grassroot Soccer South Africa
Grassroot Soccer (GRS) is a South African nonprofit organisation that uses the power of soccer to prevent HIV/AIDS. GRS trains local community-based youth role models as skills coaches to deliver comprehensive HIV prevention and life skills education through rigorously designed and evidence based curricula.
Since that time, GRS has evolved into one of the leading sport for development public health NGOs. The organization’s global headquarters are in Norwich, VT with African headquarters in Cape Town, South Africa and additional offices in Zambia, Zimbabwe, and London. The GRS team currently encompasses over 170 full time team members in five countries on three continents, as well as over 500 coaches in South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
GRC seeks to appoint a Site Coordinator, based in Port Elizabeth, Eastern Cape.
This is an opportunity for an exceptional person to join the team at Grassroot Soccer in Port Elizabeth, South Africa.
Above all the Site Coordinator drives the vision of GRS in Port Elizabeth, ensuring a deliberate, focused and effective delivery of what we do! The Site Coordinator is essentially responsible for all program delivery, activities and leadership with support of six staff, two interns and 41 coaches. The SC is the primary custodian of the site budget and must ensure careful planning of all activities according to the annual workplan. The SC ensures that intervention targets are met while allocated site funds are being spent according to grant agreements and as per the financial regulations of GRS. They ensure that all monthly reports are accurate, and are completed on time and to exceptional standard. Finally the SC is responsible for forging and maintaining local partnerships and stakeholder relationships in order to promote local business development, support programme delivery and maintain and develop referral networks to provide referral services.
GRS is where it is today through what we believe is a pretty rare mix of very clear mission, passion, humility, and a singular focus on quantifiable outcomes. As such, we’ve built a hard-earned and proud reputation among the global funding community as one of the few NGOs for whom “return on investment” is a given, and we don’t take that reputation lightly. Continual innovation is at the core of who we are and we’re not afraid to lead from the front. GRS isn’t for everyone, and a ‘fit’ with our culture is a must. You must have contagious positive energy, a passion for our mission, be self-motivated and demonstrate incredible teamwork. We’re an organization comprised of refreshingly sharp, confident and committed individuals who truly thrive on the strength of the combined team – the whole at GRS is a great deal more than the sum of the parts. A Bachelor’s degree is preferred and you have proven experience in leading a team to strength and expertly managing finances. The Site Coordinator will both thrive in, and make an enormous contribution to our unique and very special organization.
Only exceptional candidates need to apply.
