 If yes, Alberta Culture has an exciting opportunity for you!

 Reporting to the Team Lead, Grants and Financial Administration, this position is responsible for the administration of several Alberta Foundation for the Arts (AFA) grant streams. This involves keeping apprised of grant guidelines, Ministry policy, Treasury Board directives and relevant legislation. The successful candidate will be tasked with reviewing grant applications for eligibility, completeness and compliance with program requirements. This position is also responsible for entering data into the Grant Management Information System (GMIS), creating mailing lists, preparing board approval documents and other correspondence.

 The successful candidate will serve as a liaison between panel members and the Arts Branch, attending panel meetings to answer questions and providing information on the parameters of panel decisions and the program budget.

The Grants Administrator is responsible for monitoring the completion of the grant file once the amount is approved. This involves ensuring that commitments and reporting timelines are met and that funds were spent according to guidelines. This position also involves a significant amount of work liaising with and assisting program applicants by answering questions and providing additional information. The successful candidate will participate in the collection and distribution of grant related statistical information that assists the Arts Branch in delivering on its mandate. Attention to detail and the ability to think critically are essential skills for success in this role. The successful candidate must also have superior oral and written communication skills and be able to develop relationships with a varied group of stakeholders. Finally, the ability to work independently as well as part of a team is essential.
