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 75 countries.



The Opportunity 


As the Deployable Education in Emergencies (EiE) Specialist, you will be a key member of Plan International’s Global Hub Education in Emergencies team. While on deployment (which could sometimes be at short notice), you will provide technical support to Plan International’s Country Offices (COs). This normally involves responding to medium and large-scale emergencies to develop, implement, monitor and evaluate EiE programmes. You will ensure that EiE interventions are aligned with the Inter-Agency Network for Education in Emergencies Minimum Standards (INEE MS) and related resources, and other global humanitarian standards, guidelines and tools.

When not on deployment you will contribute to Plan’s EiE workplan as agreed with the team, which may include continued follow up from a distance with deployment countries. This will be done whilst building and maintaining relationships with relevant government departments and key donors.



The Individual 


We are looking to recruit an individual who has significant experience in planning, designing and implementing integrated humanitarian programmes. You will preferably have experience of working in a range of humanitarian contexts (e.g. refugee, conflict, rapid onset, etc.).

An understanding of key EiE issues is essential, as is experience of conducting educational needs assessments and the ability to build on education technical areas with a variety of audiences.

You will have excellent negotiation and representation skills, alongside the ability to work comfortably with diverse staff in a sensitive environment.

It is essential that you are fluent in both written and spoken English; fluency in Spanish, Arabic, French or any other language is desirable.
