18 hours per week, fixed term contract from July 2019 – March 2021
Plan International UK is a global children’s charity. We work to give every child the same chance in life.
The 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 (DFID, EU and UN agencies), and drive change through setting and influencing policy agendas.
Innovation to Inclusion (i2i) is a new programme funded by the Department for International Department (DFID) under Aid Connect UK to ensure people with disabilities are engaged in waged employment, particularly in the private sector. As a leading organisation for gender equality and inclusion, we work with the consortium members to ensure that the programme and its interventions address the specific vulnerabilities, risks and barriers to access facing women with disabilities. We have a unique opportunity to join the programme as a Technical Specialist.
You will provide high quality gender technical support to project teams in Bangladesh and Kenya in relation to economic empowerment of people with disabilities. You will also contribute to the development and roll out of processes, tools and resources to strengthen gender sensitive programming and build the capacity of consortium partners to mainstream gender sensitive/gender transformative approaches in their activities.
You will need to have significant experience of providing technical support to women’s economic empowerment projects and of gender mainstreaming in large, multi-country programmes. You will also have worked in complex consortia and with a range of stakeholders and will be able to use your technical knowledge in support of programmatic objectives.
The deadline for applications is 9:00am on Monday 20 May 2019
Interviews will take place on Thursday 30 May 2019
