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.
We have an exciting opportunity to join the ‘SOYEE’ (Skills and Opportunities for Youth Employment and Entrepreneurship) Collaboration Hub as Policy and Advocacy Lead. The Hub aims to build young people’s skills and employability in preparation for work in all contexts, including waged employment and entrepreneurship opportunities, improving household economic security and financial inclusion and engaging with the private sector to provide learning and work opportunities for young people, especially young women.
You will lead Plan International’s gender transformative policy and advocacy work that creates large scale change for girls, supporting overall global policy and advocacy that protects and advances girls’ rights at the international level, and the development of holistic programme and influencing models. You will share expertise and knowledge, both internally and externally, to embed gender transformative policy and advocacy at all levels and in all contexts across Plan International in our journey to tackle the root causes of discrimination against girls – exclusion and vulnerability.
You bring proven experience developing SOYEE policy positions and advocacy work with international actors in humanitarian and development settings in a country, multi country or global setting. A robust understanding of SOYEE models and approaches in both rural and urban settings is highly desirable.
We are seeking a Policy Lead who is not only well versed in the policy space but has solid practice understanding and applying in different contexts and lived experience in the countries where Plan International has programmes and an understanding of NGO structures, the girls and women’s equality movement and the UN human rights and humanitarian system.
Location: Flexible where Plan International has a legal entity and the applicant has the pre-existing right to work and live
Type of Role: Permanent unless a fixed term contract is dictated by the employing entities terms and conditions.
Reports to: Lead of SOYEE Hub and Head of Profession Policy and Advocacy
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. As an indication if this role was based in the Global Hub office in the UK the salary range would be circa £45000 per annum
