Job description

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

This role will work with key parts of the organisation to improve our content management through the rebuild and ongoing maintenance and development of our SharePoint intranet. The role holder will also help support the team build consensus on organisation wide standards for knowledge management and information sharing.


Key responsibilities will include;

  • Act as the focal point for content management and governance on our SharePoint platform Planet.
  • Work with different parts of the organisation to ensure Planet is aligned with best practice Knowledge Management and Information Management principles.
  • Support departments and business units to review and update their SharePoint content and create compelling new content using the latest available technology and SharePoint designs.
  • Find ways to highlight content and widen its reach across the organisation, including by linking with existing internal communications channels, such as our internal collaboration platform Workplace.
  • Provide guidance and support to colleagues to assist their transition to new Knowledge Management processes and ways of working on Planet.
  • Support the development and implementation of operational performance measures to continuously improve Knowledge Management and efficiency.


The Individual

With knowledge and experience of designing and creating SharePoint-based intranets, you will have advanced expertise in online information management and demonstrable experience of using analytics to improve an intranet for colleagues. You will have a demonstrable level of expertise in content management, information management and knowledge management, and an understanding of what good content looks like – with skills in copywriting and information/data visualisation.


Location: Global Hub in Woking UK or flexible where Plan International has a legal entity and the applicant has the pre-existing right to work. Those locations closest to the point of impact are preferred.

Type of Role: Permanent where this is feasible. Some locations may mean that a fixed term contract must be offered.

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. If based in the UK the associated salary would be circa £35000 per annum

Closing Date: Sunday 4th July


Equality, diversity and inclusion is at the very heart of everything that Plan International stands for.

We want Plan International to reflect the diversity of the communities we work with, offering equal opportunities to everyone regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation.

Plan International 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 foster an organisational culture that embraces our commitment to racial justice, gender equality, girls’ rights and inclusion.

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 their understanding of these recruitment procedures.
