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

 

Plan International’s global strategy applies a full spectrum approach where Disaster Risk Management (DRM)/Humanitarian is an integral part of everything the organization does for children and girls, especially in fragile settings. A new DRM vision was developed in 2018 highlighting Plan’s ambition of becoming a global leader and the NGO partner of choice for promoting gender equality and protecting girls’ rights in disaster and conflict settings, working at the nexus of development and humanitarian efforts.

 

The post holder is responsible for overseeing administrative, logistical, and financial/grant oversight support, as well as providing some targeted programmatic support depending on background of the post holder and need in team.

 

You bring previous administration experience with the ability to deliver to tight deadlines and on multiple priorities and excellent attention to detail.

Excellent communication skills, fluent written and spoken English and the ability to summarise technical issues in simple, accessible language is essential.

 

Knowledge of the humanitarian NGO sector is key and experience in a humanitarian response would be advantageous.
