Job description

Since adopting our global strategy, 100 Million Reasons, our global work to advance children’s rights and equality for girls has had unprecedented impact. We have been transforming our operations at the Global Hub to be the best possible partner for the 8,000+ staff who work in our country offices, and working to become a more agile, efficient and accountable organization.

We have improved our mechanisms for collaboration, transparency and data-gathering and disaggregation. The transformation has increased the number of decisions to be taken close to the point of impact and distributed power more widely throughout the organisation. We have made significant progress towards greater localisation and developing industry-leading equality, diversity and inclusion best practices.

To bring about lasting change, we have to live our values. We are committed not simply to telling the world we are the go to organisation on girls’ rights, but to embedding justice and equality in all that we do. Will you join us?

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

As the Senior Adviser to the Executive Director (ED) - Resources you will provide high level advice, information, stakeholder engagement, project management, research, analysis and business insight.

The role is varied and exciting and you will directly contribute to a range of initiatives transforming our operations at the Global Hub as we work towards becoming a more agile, efficient and accountable organisation and the best possible partner for the 8,000+ staff who work in our country offices.

The Individual

We are looking to recruit an engaging, positive team player who has demonstrable experience in assessing business risks, issues, and opportunities with a high degree of coherence and clarity to solve complex problems and innovate.

You will need to be able to think critically and to research and analyse complex information.

With strong project management skills and experience of planning and prioritization of projects and work programmes.

You will need to have a strong understanding of core business functions and processes including those relating to Finance, People & Culture, IT, Risk, Governance and Corporate Services in a complex, global context.

To be successful in this role you will need to have strong written and interpersonal communication skills with an awareness of cultural sensitivity.  As well as excellent presentation and stakeholder management skills.

A passion for the Plan International purpose, with an understanding of our commitment to development and humanitarian values, standards and child protection.

Location: Global Hub Offices in Woking (COVID restrictions permitting) with home working flexibility.
Type of Role: Permanent
Reports to: Executive Director - Resources
Salary: We will be happy to disclose the salary and applicable benefits to applicants as part of this process, however, please kindly note that this will vary according to the location of the appointed candidate and therefore, it is not possible to include full details here. The salary for an appointed candidate based in the UK will be in the range of £40,000 - £47,000
Closing Date: Sunday 2 May 2021

Early application is encouraged as we will review applications throughout the advertising period and reserve the right to close the advert early.

Plan International believes that in a world where children face so many threats of harm, it is our duty to ensure that we, as an organisation, do everything we can to keep children safe. This means that we have particular responsibilities to children that we come into contact with and we must not contribute in any way to harming or placing children at risk. 

A range of pre-employment checks will be undertaken in conformity with Plan International's Safeguarding Children and Young People policy. Plan International also participates in the Inter Agency Misconduct Disclosure Scheme. In line with this scheme we will request information from applicants previous employers about any findings of sexual exploitation, sexual abuse and/or sexual harassment during employment, or incidents under investigation when the applicant left employment. By submitting an application, the job applicant confirms his/her understanding of these recruitment procedures. 

Equality, diversity and inclusion is at the very heart of everything that Plan International stands for. Our organisation is based on a culture of inclusivity and we strive to create a workplace environment that ensures every team, in every office, in every country, is rich in diverse people, thoughts, and ideas. 

We will provide equality of opportunity and will not tolerate discrimination on any grounds. We foster an organisational culture that embraces and exemplifies our commitment to gender equality, girls’ rights and inclusion while supporting staff to adopt good practice, positive attitudes and principles of gender equality and inclusion.
