Job Description

Plan International UK is a global children’s charity. We work to give every child the same chance in life.

The International Policy and Programmes Directorate supports our aims by ensuring that we deliver the highest quality policy and programmes. We constantly enhance programme quality and effectiveness, raise income from institutional donors (like the British Government), and drive change through setting and influencing policy agendas.

We’ve created a new Donor Compliance Manager role to ensure the effective compliance of donor funded awards. In this role you will act as the key focal point for donor compliance support for the Directorate, providing technical leadership and leading on mainstreaming donor compliance within the organisation. This will include providing guidance and oversight on nuanced financial, contractual and donor compliance requirements across the active and pipeline grant portfolios; building staff capacity on donor compliance and supporting due diligence assessments.

You will have significant experience of providing donor compliance advisory support for the full awards lifecycle to grants/programmes teams in the UK and/or overseas. This will have included supporting and responding to donor audits, undertaking due diligence on partners and reviewing contracts to ensure they are in line with the best interests of the organisation. You will be able to explain complex issues verbally and in writing and to demonstrate expertise in donor compliance requirements (particularly DFID, EC and ECHO).

Occasional international travel will be required, up to a maximum of two weeks per year.

The deadline for applications is 9:00am on 25 June 2019

Interviews will take place on Thursday 4 July 2019
