Deployable Cash & Voucher Assistance Specialist at Plan International August, 2023

Location: Globally flexible, Flexible

Company: Plan International

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 85 years, and are now active in more than 80 countries.


Disasters and conflicts threaten children’s rights and damage the societies they live in. Last year alone, Plan International responded to 81 disasters globally to champion and uphold the rights of children, particularly girls, before, during and after emergencies.


To sustain its engagement with children affected by crises, our Humanitarian team is currently recruiting committed humanitarian experts to deploy 9 months of the year to various emergency contexts. This role is an exciting opportunity to contribute to the growth of our Core Surge team and to support children and their communities around the world in building resilience to increasing disaster risks.
