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


Working in 54 countries across Africa, Asia and the Americas, with a total annual budget of approximately $1 billion, Plan International’s stated Global Strategic Goal is to reach as many children as possible, particularly those who are excluded or marginalised, with high-quality programmes that deliver long-lasting benefits.


Plan International has implemented a global Programme and Influence Quality Policy that ensures programme quality is at the heart of everything we do. It is supported by quality procedures and policies, which focus on how Plan designs and implements all of its programme work at the strategic and operational level.


In this role as the Project and Programme Management Specialist you will lead and continue to develop the quality procedures for project management, which will have a major impact on all of Plan’s Country Offices. The position will work as part of the Project and Funds team working directly with countries to strengthen project cycle management, generating good practice and coordinating resources to meet needs. The position will also support the development of training materials for new end-to-end business and system processes for project management across the organisation.


The Individual


This is an important role that will engage strategically across functional and geographical boundaries across the organisation. Therefore, you will be required to have demonstrable experience of managing NGO programmes in the implementation locations both at strategic and operational level. As well as experience developing global procedures and guidance for NGO programme management, building capacities in programme management through direct and remote support.


You will need to be proactive, positive and results-focused with strong analytical and problem-solving skills.


With strong collaboration and networking skills, you will need to influence, engage and build cooperation across multiple stakeholders with different perspectives.


Committed to maximising the quality of NGO programme work, as well as to Plan International’s mission, values and approach to Child centred Community Development
