The Organisation


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

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.

  • to improve their information- & knowledge management (KM)- and learning practices and approaches for the purpose of continuously improving our programme & influence work globally
  • develop a culture where connections and knowledge activities are encouraged, and knowledge is valued and actively used to deliver better outcomes for children and particularly girls

The Role:

Within this role, the ability to build effective relationships quickly, communicate confidently and work across various networks, specifically being able to work remotely, will be crucial. This role will need an individual who can adapt and build our knowledge management and stakeholder engagement function for future successes, including increasing the team.
