Featured Nonprofit Job: Grant Writer

Are you as skilled with numbers as you are with the pen? Are you able to work on tight deadlines? If you answered "yes" to both of these questions, NPT Jobs has just the position for you.

Lutheran Social Services of Central Ohio (LSSCO) is actively searching for a full-time Grant Writer to identify and pursue a vast array of grant opportunities that support fundraising and program priorities for the organization. This position will partner with program leadership to plan and ensure targeted grant goals are being met. While teamwork is certainly a part of this job, you must also be able to work independently to research, analyze, and make recommendations for new grant opportunities.

Wondering what it takes to qualify for this work? LSSCO listed the following requirements in their job description:

  • Bachelor's Degree in communications or a related field.
  • At least five years of grant writing experience, specifically with government or other complex grants.
  • Strong computer skills with knowledge in online resources, Microsoft Office products, and Raiser's Edge or other application databases.
  •  Demonstrated ability to work as a team and develop collaborative partnerships with the ability to set expectations, hold other accountable, and provide effective feedback. Must be able to handle multiple tasks simultaneously and set priorities.
If you fit all of these qualifications then you are definitely a candidate for the job. Apply today via our career center!
