Programme & Partnerships Officer, EM2030

Date: 16-Nov-2021

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 80 years, and are now active in more than 70 countries.

The Opportunity


Equal Measures 2030 (EM2030) is a collaboration of national, regional and global leaders from feminist networks, civil society, international development and the private sector. We connect data and evidence with advocacy and action on gender equality, to transform the lives of women and girls and realize the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs.)


EM2030’s flagship data product is the SDG Gender Index, first launched in 2019. The index aims to drive accountability for commitments to and for girls and women and their rights in line with the Sustainable Development Goals.


With just 9 years left to achieve the SDGs, EM2030 is launching its second iteration of the SDG Gender Index in early 2022. The index and associated products and analysis will aim to engage and galvanise gender equality advocates and policymakers to reflect on progress to date and to commit to accelerated action with and for girls and women.


The Programme & Partnerships Officer will work in close collaboration with EM2030 partners, especially the regional and national partners, to support their context-specific index launch plans and advocacy activities. Crucial to the success of this work will be relationship building and spotting opportunities for shared learning, networking and building connections between EM2030 partners at all levels. The postholder will also work closely with partners to understand, report on, and communicate about the impact of their data-driven advocacy work.


The successful candidate will be committed to and experienced in feminist and anti-racist approaches to partnership building, have significant experience living and working outside of North America and Europe, and be a self-starter with the ability to navigate and prioritise across a wide variety of relationships and deliverables. Fluency in at least two of EM2030’s core languages (English, French and Spanish) is essential.

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.

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.
