Please note that this role may be based from the Global Hub in Woking, UK (although we are currently home-based due to COVID restrictions) or in most locations where Plan International has a legal entity and you have the pre-existing right to live and work. Our preference is for roles to be based as close to the point of impact as possible.
Since adopting our global strategy, 100 Million Reasons, our global work to advance children’s rights and equality for girls has had unprecedented impact. We have been transforming our operations at the Global Hub to be the best possible partner for the 8,000+ staff who work in our country offices, and working to become a more agile, efficient and accountable organization.
We have improved our mechanisms for collaboration, transparency and data-gathering and disaggregation. The transformation has increased the number of decisions to be taken close to the point of impact and distributed power more widely throughout the organisation. We have made significant progress towards greater localisation and developing industry-leading equality, diversity and inclusion best practices.
To bring about lasting change, we have to live our values. We are committed not simply to telling the world we are the go to organisation on girls’ rights, but to embedding justice and equality in all that we do. Will you join us?
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 Performance – Insights, Planning and Reporting team provide the key link between the global strategy and the work of the enterprise, helping the organisation to understand the strategy, translate it into action, and accelerate its impact in transforming girls’ lives. As the Manager of Performance – Insights, Planning and Reporting, you will manage the delivery of the Business Planning Framework across the Global Hub, Regional Hubs and Country Offices. You will design and manage operational and strategic performance mechanisms whilst also contributing to organisational learning through providing insights to relevant management fora and business partnering.
In this role you will manage the production of analysis and actionable insights to inform the decision-making processes of governance committees and senior management in support of Plan International’s strategy. This includes periodic and ad-hoc operational and strategic analysis and insight identification. You will also build relevant communities of practice in planning and performance and engage with peer NGOs and external fora in relevant programme operations, performance and quality fields.
We are looking to recruit a solutions-oriented individual with operational experience across a number of functional business areas. You will have demonstrable experience of navigating organizational complexity, including structures and decision-making processes and of influencing others to deliver results. Your project management experience will be strong and you will also have experience of performance and insights reporting to drive decision-making. Ideally, you will have experience of working in an International NGO.
To be successful in this role you will have excellent interpersonal skills and you will have strong rational and emotional intelligence, with resilience in the face of pushback and resistance to new ideas and ways of working. Your presentation and facilitation skills will be excellent, as you’re your understanding of tools and approaches for data analysis.

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.

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.
