Job Description

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 80 years, and are now active in more than 70 countries.

The Opportunity

Programme Y.O.D.A (Your Organisation’s Data Analytics) is an organisational programme through which we will change our Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution, revise our processes and working practices in relation to Finance, Grants, Programmes and Projects and Logistics and Procurement, and develop a new Monitoring, Evaluation, Research and Learning (MERL) solution.

The main purpose of this role is to design, develop, deliver, communicate and evaluate effective learning solutions for staff to be able to use the new ERP system. You will consistently apply relevant financial processes and procedures and ensure this aligns to the revised operational manuals. The assignment will end with delivery of training as the new system is deployed to Plan’s operations around the world.

The Individual

Within this role, you will design, develop and communicate system learning solutions for treasury and accounts payable transactions. Therefore, prior knowledge of banking transaction processes and accounting is crucial. You will also need strong stakeholder management and relationship building skills as you will need to work closely with the Y.O.D.A Learning and Development Manager to ensure that learning meets functional requirements, considering the best available delivery channels. There will be a need for you to develop and deliver training for Finance, so previous experience in this area would be required.

As an international child centred community development organisation, Plan International is fully committed to promoting the realisation of children's rights including their right to protection from violence and abuse. That means we have particular responsibilities to children that we come into contact with.

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. We must not contribute in any way to harming or placing children at risk.

Equality, diversity and inclusion is at the very heart of everything that Plan International stands for. Our organisation is based on a culture of inclusivity and we strive to create a workplace environment that ensures every team, in every office, in every country, is rich in diverse people, thoughts, and ideas.

About Plan International

Founded in 1937, Plan International is a development and humanitarian organisation that advances children’s rights and equality for girls. We strive for a just world, working together with children, young people, our supporters and partners.

OUR PURPOSE

We strive for a just world that advances children’s rights and equality for girls.

We engage people and partners to:

  • Empower children, young people and communities to make vital changes that tackle the root causes of discrimination against girls, exclusion and vulnerability.
  • Drive change in practice and policy at local, national and global levels through our reach, experience and knowledge of the realities children face.
  • Work with children and communities to prepare for and respond to crises and to overcome adversity.
  • Support the safe and successful progression of children from birth to adulthood. 

OUR STRATEGY AND AMBITION

To fulfil the promise of the 2030 Global Goals, our 5-year Global Strategy is designed to deliver significant change for girls and boys, putting a special emphasis on gender equality. 

We see clear links between fulfilling children’s rights, achieving gender equality and ending child poverty. Every girl and boy has the right to be healthy, educated, protected, valued and respected in their own community and beyond. 

We support these rights from when children are born to when they reach adulthood. We work to ensure that girls and boys know their rights, and have the skills, knowledge and confidence to fulfil them. This approach inspires and empowers children and communities to create long-lasting change.

Girls have the power to change the world. Our ambition is to work beside them and together we take action so 100 million girls learn, lead, decide and thrive.

Our global advocacy work not only focuses on international policy but also ensures national governments can meaningfully implement and uphold laws that advance children’s rights and gender equality at community level.

TOGETHER, WE ARE TRANSFORMING LIVES.
