Plan International UK


£46,188 per annum

Plan International UK is a global children’s charity striving for an equal world. One where every child can reach their full potential and every girl can choose her own future.

We bring people together to protect children’s rights and keep girls safe, in school and in control of their bodies – even when disaster strikes. And we won’t stop until we are all equal.

Plan International strives to advance children’s rights and equality for girls all over the world.

An opportunity has arisen for a Programme Specialist to join the Humanitarian Unit on a permanent basis.

In this role you will:

  • Support the development of Plan International UK’s disasters and emergencies portfolio, including programming that addresses disaster risk, and strengthens community resilience
  • Develop and manage a significant part of Plan International UK’s humanitarian portfolio; predominantly in Francophone West & Central Africa
  • Work across various areas, including grant management, programme development, and relationship building both internally and externally
  • Act as a resource for the international organisation, providing support to disaster response on a deployment basis if required

You will need a solid background of designing and implementing humanitarian and/or DRR-Resilience projects and of securing and overseeing projects from major humanitarian donors (such as DFID, DEC, Start Network, UN), preferably with a focus on Francophone West and Central Africa. French fluency is a requirement for this role, due to the geographic coverage. You will also have experience of working in consortium to raise and manage major donor grants and the proven ability to develop and oversee grant funded programmes across all phases of the programme cycle. You’ll be able to demonstrate good knowledge of the role of children in development and disasters work, particularly in relation to child rights and participation.

The deadline for applications is 23.59pm on Friday 7 June 2024

Interviews will take place on the week starting 17 June 2024

We are committed to the safeguarding and protection of children, young people and adults in our work. We, therefore, apply rigorous recruitment and selection processes to ensure that only those who are suitable are recruited to work for us. Accordingly, appointment to all our roles is subject to a range of vetting checks and for this role this will include a Basic Disclosure and Barring (DBS) check. A criminal record will not necessarily bar you from working for us; this will depend on the circumstances of any offences.

Plan International UK is committed to being an inclusive employer and we welcome applications from candidates from all backgrounds.
