Campaign Manager (Public Mobilisation)

Date: 05-Feb-2019

Location: Woking, UKM, GB

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.

Our recently launched, global campaign, Girls Get Equal, is about ensuring every girl and young woman has power over her own life and can shape the world around her. Imagine a world where you see and hear girls equally in the corridors of power, at decision-making tables, in the home, in boardrooms and in all forms of media. Imagine a world that values girls, and where girls value themselves. Through our Girls Get Equal campaign, Plan International is challenging the outdated rules which prevents girls from being equally seen, heard and valued. 


The girls’ rights movement is changing the world but girls can’t achieve equality alone, they need allies.


The Opportunity

This is an exciting opportunity to drive the delivery of Girls Get Equal, our global, youth-led flagship campaign for equality for girls. It is a fresh, vibrant and energetic campaign.

With a strong commitment to Plan International’s values and the feminist values underpinning our global campaign. The Campaign Manager (public mobilisation) will play a crucial role in managing the successful implementation of Girls Get Equal, particularly focusing on mobilising public support, to create a world that values girls, promotes their rights and ends injustice. 

The role will work closely with the Head of Global Campaigns and the Global Campaign Team as well as with colleagues across Plan International to ensure that there is ownership and enthusiasm across the organisation and be a champion for the Girls Get Equal campaign internally and externally.
