You will represent the organisation externally, leveraging and building on existing networks to share our work and position us as the go-to partner for girls’ rights programming in the sector. You will also line manage the Youth and Support Officer and ensure they support young people’s participation in wider Plan International UK events and activities.
You will have worked directly in a field related to youth engagement, gender equality and/or girls’ rights, with a track record of implementing programmes, initiatives, campaigns or research in these areas. You will be able to advocate for girls’ rights programming and policy, persuading others of the importance and engendering support. Knowledge of women and girls’ rights in the UK (and current trends and policies in this area) and of the UK youth and local government context including funding streams, trends, and governance are essential.
This role will be based in Cardiff. It will involve overnight stays and occasional evening and weekend work, plus regular travel in Wales and occasional travel to London.
The deadline for applications is 9:00am on Monday 30 September 2019.
