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 85 years, and are now active in more than 80 countries.
As part of our global strategy to transform the lives of 200 million girls, Plan International hosts and co-chairs a new innovative multi-stakeholder coalition for adolescent girls. We are seeking a Project Manager to join the Global Partnerships Team to lead and manage the Adolescent Girls Investment Plan (AGIP) and its related projects. AGIP is a growing coalition of 14+ partner organisations (including civil society, youth, academia, foundations and others) working to push for prioritised and evidence-informed investments in adolescent girls by governments and donors, at all levels. The Adolescent Girls Investment Plan will act as a bridge between evidence on ‘what works’ for girls and budgeting and policy making leading to real change for girls in a number of global policy opportunities.
You will need to have strong strategic project & partnership management experience (preferably in research, programming, and partnerships for gender, girls’ rights and/or youth engagement fields at a global level) to lead the coalition through the last year of its current strategy, managing the development and securing the sustainability of the multi-stakeholder partnership. This work will include: high level stakeholder engagement, research outputs, deliver AGIP’s ambitious advocacy strategy, resource mobilisation and grant management, as well as to oversee all Secretariat activities. We encourage applicants from diverse backgrounds to apply.
Please respond to the requirements of the role in your cover letter.
Only CVs and cover letters in English will be accepted.
