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.

Strong and proven technical accounting ability with knowledge of corporate accounting, under both IFRS and US GAAP, as well as substantial experience of financial reporting, including consolidations, at a group level in an international, multicurrency organisation. Including advanced consolidation experience (preferably SAP BPC/MS Dynamics 365)

Demonstrable understanding and experience of applying financial accounting controls, as well as knowledge and awareness of generally applicable financial policies and procedures.
