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.

Represent Plan International with the host Government, both at a national and regional level, highlighting key issues of concern impacting on children and in particular on girls.
Ensure robust financial management system is in place across the field offices.
Oversee and approve sit-reps on the emergency response and recovery. Ensure timely dissemination of situation reports and fundraising material to Plan International’s Headquarters and National Organisations.
Do you have what it takes?
With proven relevant humanitarian aid experience in complex and natural disasters, you will have lead multi-disciplinary, multi-national teams under difficult circumstances, in a sensitive and participatory manner, with management responsibility for multi-million dollar budgets, a high level of expertise in external representation and excellent analytical and problem-solving skills.
