AAP Specialist - Ukraine Refugee Crisis Response

Date: 20-Jun-2022

Location: Globally flexible,, Flexible

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 85 years, and are now active in more than 75 countries.

 

The Role

 

The conflict in Ukraine is resulting in a major humanitarian crisis with over 3 million people having fled to neighboring countries, and millions displaced within Ukraine. Plan International is responding to the crisis and working in partnership with civil society organisations in Poland, Romania, and Moldova to meet the key needs of those affected by the crisis as well as host communities.

 

This position will play a key role in the support to country level activities and will provide technical support and guidance to Plan International teams and partners in Poland, Romania, and Moldova. A priority focus will be on supporting child friendly feedback mechanisms established and to ensure accountability is core to our response. The position will initially be remote but may well be based in one of the 3 countries in the future. 

 

The Ukraine Hub is a service-oriented structure to support initiation of activities, and to help find solutions to problems as and when arise. Creative thinking and identifying work arounds to problems faced will be a critical element of the role.

 

The position will develop Plan International’s approach to accountability, risk communication and community engagement across all response locations, in close collaboration with our partners.

 

The role is the primary point of contact for technical staff in Poland, Moldova, and Romania and will ensure Plan International is following high standards of programme quality. Complaints and feedback mechanisms will be established where absent, and close links with our safeguarding activities will be ensured throughout all work. The post holder will represent Plan International in external fora, ensuring the organisation is seen as a leader in gender focussed programming in humanitarian response.
