Fixed-term for 5 months

Plan International UK is a global childrenโ€™s charity. We strive to advance childrenโ€™s rights and equality for girls all over the world.

Working together with children, young people, our supporters and partners, we're tackling the root causes of gender inequality and child poverty, and we are now active in more than 70 countries worldwide.

We are looking for an experienced Programme Specialist to support the development and management of Plan International UKโ€™s humanitarian and/or Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) Resilience portfolio focusing on within West and Central Africa, the Middle East and Latin America and the Caribbean.

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 institutional donors (such as DFID, DEC, Start Network, UN). You will also have proven 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. Knowledge on education in emergencies projects as well as being able to speak French and/or Spanish would be advantageous.

As a Programme Specialist with a varied and wide workload, you will have demonstrable ability to prioritise work and use your time effectively while paying close attention to details to produce high quality work. We would also like to see strong communication skills โ€“ listening, questioning, and giving feedback as well as informing. Working through partners and/or in consortia is a key part of the role and your influencing and negotiating skills will therefore play a large part in helping build and maintain mutually beneficial relationships with our internal and external stakeholders.

The deadline for applications is 9am on 6 August 2021

Interviews will take place w/c 9 August 2021
