Project Manager - Poland

Date: 20-Sep-2022

Location: Warsaw, Poland

Company: Plan International

The Organisation


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


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 has resulted in a major humanitarian crisis. Over 5 million people have fled to neighbouring countries, and millions are 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 needs of those affected by the crisis as well as host communities.


Plan International has been operating in Poland for the past 6 months and has established partnerships with civil society organisations, ensuring national actors are equipped with technical support, best practices and flexible resources, with a primary thematic focus on Child Protection, Education and Mental Health & Psychosocial Support.


We’re recruiting a Project Manager to work with institutional donors to design, launch, monitor and review multiple projects, ensuring they are delivered on time and to budget. You’ll be working closely with Plan’s technical advisors to ensure relevant support is provided.


If you'd like to join the Plan International response and make an impact on women and children affected by the Ukraine Crisis, we can't wait to hear from you.


The Requirements 

  • Extensive experience in an emergency and/or with a development organisation or INGO 

  • Professional experience managing and implementing humanitarian/development projects 

  • Experience with the management of a multisector project 

  • Good understanding of global humanitarian standards 

  • Ability to work effectively with multiple counterparts in the private, public and NGO sectors  

Location: Warsaw, Poland

Type of Role: 6 month fixed-term contract with potential to extend 

Closing Date: Wednesday 28th September 2022


Due to the emergency nature of our response, and the critical need for colleagues to begin in-country ASAP, we are only able to accept applications from candidates who have the pre-existing right to enter Poland visa-free for at least 90 days.


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.


Please note that Plan International will never send unsolicited emails requesting payment from candidates.
