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.

You will also provide leadership across the organisation on Gender in Emergencies developing clear and realistic conceptual thinking, guidance and tools. In addition, provide technical advice in ensuring gender is incorporated in a meaningful way into the design, implementation and monitoring of Disaster Risk Management programmes.

• Demonstrable experience working in advocacy, influencing and negotiating skills, experienced in gaining commitment from a wide range of people, bringing about change and providing support from a distance
• Knowledge of international humanitarian standards and codes of conduct
• Excellent skills in writing funding submissions and donor reports
