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

The Global ECD (Early Childhood Development) network Coordinator is responsible for facilitating and administering Plan International’s ECD network, which currently includes approximately 300 staff from Country Offices, Programme Units, and National Organizations working in both development and humanitarian settings. The aim of the network is to catalyse and support sharing and learning among ECD programme and influencing staff, in order to progress quality, gender-transformative ECD work aligned with the nexus approach.

The network coordinator collaborates with the other members of the ECD Hub, and the ECD Core Group to mobilize network members’ support and inputs for advancing global ECD priorities, including the development of guidance/standards, policy and advocacy briefs/positions and external representation. The network coordinator supports the practical application of these resources in the countries, through the facilitation of ECD knowledge management platforms and processes; coordination of the design and implementation of an ECD network learning plan; and through facilitating connections for peer-to-peer technical support, where relevant.

The Global ECD Network Coordinator works with staff engaged in the design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of ECD programming and influencing work across different Country Offices (COs) and National Organizations (NOs). The coordinator also works in collaboration with the coordinators of the Hubs/networks for Plan International’s other priority thematic areas, relevant Disaster Risk Management (DRM) specialists, as well as Specialists in Knowledge Management, to ensure consistent and joined up communication, knowledge management and learning approaches.
