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


This is an exciting opportunity to lead and oversee the global Girls and Youth Power & Action Hub (GYPA). The Hub’s vision is a world where young people, particularly girls and young women in all their diversity, are active drivers of systemic change, leading feminist movements and campaigns with the support and collaboration of allies across the world.


In this role as the Head of Youth, Movements and Campaigns you will ensure it delivers on its mandate to engage and connect people and partners – inside and outside Plan International – to be an engine for driving youth voice and engagement in all areas.


This role provides overall feminist leadership for this team and mandate at the global level, to ensure Plan International achieves its ambitions and maximises impact with this approach to social change.


About You


With strong knowledge of girl- and youth-led gender transformative programming and influencing, including in humanitarian contexts. You will have a proven track record of leading influential campaigns and developing high-quality youth programming.


You will need to have a deep commitment to feminist leadership principles and proven experience of putting these into practice, including enabling collective self-care and well-being for a high performing and multi-cultural team.


You will have robust change management skills and the ability to ensure strong strategic and operational agility.


You will have experience connecting global and local efforts to ensure sustainable change, and of resource mobilisation.
