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

Plan International is going through a major technology and business transformation programme named Programme Y.O.D.A (Your Organisation’s Data and Analytics), through this we are changing our Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution; revising our processes and working practices in relation to Finance, Grants, Programmes and Projects, and Supply Chain. Our new ERP solution will strengthen our business processes, leading to a more data driven and transparent organisation, which in turn, will make us more efficient and sustainable

The training materials development for Y.O.D.A is undertaken by internal subject matter experts in each functional area co-working with the Learning & Development team.
