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 Global Influencing and Partnerships (GIP) Department is responsible for Plan International’s external relations, communications, policy and advocacy functions. Within this department, the Global Partnerships Team (GPT) is the unit responsible for leading and supporting the cultivation, building and nurturing of strategic relationships and alliances with a wide range of stakeholders including private sector, foundations & trusts, the United Nations, international financing institutions, multi-stakeholder coalitions, Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) and academia. We are looking for someone who can help develop and scape up key strategic partnership opportunities to strengthen our position as the leading girls’ rights organisation.
You will be responsible for conducting research and market analysis on partnership opportunities and trends, and for maintaining strong relationships with Plan Offices and technical networks. The key to succeeding in this role will be the ability to support the development corporate partnerships so as to engage the private sector to create innovative and strategic partnerships combining expertise and resources for maximum impact. To do this, you will have the ability to confidently communicate with multiple stakeholders, be able to learn how our organisation works quickly, and have demonstrable project management skills.
