Plan International UK is a global children’s charity. We strive to advance children’s rights and equality for girls all over the world.
Working together with children, young people, our supporters and partners, we're tackling the root causes of gender inequality and child poverty, and we are now active in more than 70 countries worldwide.
We have an exciting new opportunity to join our Policy, Advocacy and Research Team (PAR) as Policy and Advocacy Adviser – Humanitarian. In this role you will influence the policies and action of the UK Government and other stakeholders in relation to humanitarian crises.
Liaising with colleagues across the Plan International family, you will develop and deliver impactful policy positions and advocacy strategies targeting the UK Government and other key stakeholders in relation to specific crises and wider humanitarian issues. There will be a particular focus on girls’ rights and gender equality and ensuring the voices of girls in crisis-affected contexts are heard.
You will have proven experience of successfully developing and implementing policy and advocacy strategies targeting a specific Government and be able to develop robust, evidence-based and influential policy positions on international development/humanitarian issues. You will also have a sound understanding of the global humanitarian system including the role of donor Governments within it, and current debates and challenges. Strong inter-personal and communication skills are key to this role, being able to collaborate and negotiate with a wide range of internal and external stakeholders.
