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

In this role you will pro-actively coordinate and assist in maintaining project plans, project related documentation, risk logs, and communications.

You will be working closely with the IT Programme Manager to maintain financial forecasts by consolidating invoices and budgets from our implementation partners. During roll-out phases of the project you will co-ordinate with both country and regional office resources during training and go-live preparation.
