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

We are seeking an Innovation Manager to work in the Innovation Team in our Global Hub. This role requires an experienced innovation practitioner with a unique blend of creative and technical skills to help us maximise the impact of our innovation capability across the organisation.

You will be responsible for creating an enabling environment for innovation across the organisation. This will involve the design and implementation of a knowledge management system so previous experience in this area would be beneficial. Furthermore, you will create and implement a communications plan for innovation that will build internal understanding and uptake of innovation principles, methods and tools, as well as creating external awareness of the Innovation team’s capability and opportunities for impactful partnerships.

You will also be leading innovation projects, which includes planning and resource management, coaching of teams across multiple locations, facilitation of live and virtual workshops, managing multiple internal and external stakeholders, and ensuring quality assurance, legal compliance and project scaleup.
