Grant writer for time-limited tasks. Rolling application process!


IRCT is the leading global association on torture rehabilitation, with 164 member organisations in 76 countries. A team of 13 based in Copenhagen, Brussels, USA, and Canada coordinates the collective work of global members. Our team is responsible for securing funding to finance inspiring solutions to challenges faced by torture survivors daily – and the caregivers who support them.

IRCT works at the heart of the human rights sector supporting member-led global anti-torture initiatives. Torture rehabilitation centres do front-line work to rehabilitate torture survivors through psychological support, physical therapy, and occupational therapy. IRCT secretariat leads data collection and analysis from cases so decision-makers at national and international levels can be influenced to live up to their obligations to eradicate torture, finance rehabilitation support, and deliver justice.

We need a sharp grant writer familiar with the burning issues within the global mental health sector, particularly trauma-informed treatment, the benefits of lived experience and survivor engagement. Your skill set includes an ability to communicate with written, error-free English to donors and foundations about the IRCT activities requiring funding in the intersection between mental health and torture rehabilitation and other sectors, for instance, livelihoods or human rights.

You can shape up a draft proposal into a donor-ready concept note rapidly, including relevant online references.

You listen and observe during a group meeting- and leave it with the outline of a project concept in your mind, which you transcribe into a convincing project proposal, including the budget.

IRCT will pay 45 euro/hour.
