Head of Programme – Strategy 214 views0 applications


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

In this role as the Head of Programmes – Strategy (HoP-S) you will help to realise our vision by supporting the Country Director in shaping and implementing Plan International’s strategy at a country level. Your talents as a leader and communicator will inspire and influence Plan International employees and volunteers while engaging partners, government, local communities and other stakeholders. You will bring a focused approach to key responsibilities such as risk management, promotion of learning, income growth, creation of programmes and the oversight of projects.

Do you have what it takes?

You will have strong people management skills, be adept at developing people, building relationships, and creating a strong sense of purpose and collaboration for all those around you. You will bring genuine passion, determination, and fresh thinking – with the aim of expanding both our reach and our impact, and making change work for millions of children, particularly girls.

Your deep understanding of child rights and gender in development and knowledge of the concepts of sustainable community development and of participatory approaches and practice in development interventions will be essential.
