Talent Acquisition Manager

Date: 13-Nov-2021

Location: Flexible, UK

Company: Plan International

The Organisation


Plan International is an independent development and humanitarian organisation that advances children’s rights and equality for girls.


We believe in the power and potential of every child. But this is often suppressed by poverty, violence, exclusion and discrimination. And it’s girls who are most affected.


Working together with children, young people, our supporters and partners, we strive for a just world, tackling the root causes of the challenges facing girls and all vulnerable children.


We support children’s rights from birth until they reach adulthood. And we enable children to prepare for – and respond to – crises and adversity. We drive changes in practice and policy at local, national and global levels using our reach, experience and knowledge.


We have been building powerful partnerships for children for over 80 years, and are now active in more than 70 countries.


The Opportunity


The Talent Acquisition Manager will primarily focus on managing the recruitment of a variety of roles to support Plan International's Enterprise Resource Planning and Project Management systems. You will work closely with the programme team working on these system projects to understand the workforce needs, the timing of these needs and the duration of roles. The person will support planning for the recruitment process and the best strategies to attract the right people to the various roles, including internal secondments.


You will also support Plan International’s overall Talent Acquisition strategy and operate as an active member of the Talent Acquisition team sharing ideas and responsibilities as demands in talent acquisition dictate.

As part of this you will help to improve the process around finalising engagement and secondment agreements with employing entities of Global Hub roles outside of the UK and the ongoing improvements and initiatives across our global recruitment strategy.


Our employer value proposition is vital to us and you will help to build upon the work already done in this area externally on Linkedin and other platforms.

Equality, diversity and inclusion is at the very heart of everything that Plan International stands for.


We want Plan International to reflect the diversity of the communities we work with, offering equal opportunities to everyone regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation.


Plan International is based on a culture of inclusivity and we strive to create a workplace environment that ensures every team, in every office, in every country, is rich in diverse people, thoughts, and ideas.


We foster an organisational culture that embraces our commitment to racial justice, gender equality, girls’ rights and inclusion.


Plan International believes that in a world where children face so many threats of harm, it is our duty to ensure that we, as an organisation, do everything we can to keep children safe. This means that we have particular responsibilities to children that we come into contact with and we must not contribute in any way to harming or placing children at risk.


A range of pre-employment checks will be undertaken in conformity with Plan International's Safeguarding Children and Young People policy. Plan International also participates in the Inter Agency Misconduct Disclosure Scheme. In line with this scheme we will request information from applicants previous employers about any findings of sexual exploitation, sexual abuse and/or sexual harassment during employment, or incidents under investigation when the applicant left employment. By submitting an application, the job applicant confirms their understanding of these recruitment procedures.
