Programme Specialist - Disaster Risk Management
Posted on Jan 24, 2019 by Plan International UK
The International Policy and Programmes Directorate supports our aims by ensuring that we deliver the highest quality policy and programmes. We constantly enhance programme quality and effectiveness, raise income from institutional donors (like the British Government), and drive change through setting and influencing policy agendas.
Our Disaster Risk Management Unit (DRMU) supports our country offices to design and deliver quality programmes, assisting with the development of strong donor relationships, and providing technical support for humanitarian work.
We have an opportunity for a Programme Specialist to support the development of our disasters and emergencies work. You will work across various areas, including grant management, programme development, and relationship building to develop and manage a significant part of Plan International UK's disasters grants portfolio, and raising the profile of the organisation as a humanitarian actor.
You will have experience of designing and implementing disaster/emergency projects, in line with institutional donors' requirements and expectations, as well as developing and overseeing grant funded programmes across all phases of the programme cycle. Good analytical and problem solving skills, and a good understanding of the role of children in development and disasters work, particularly in relation to child rights and participation, are essential. Fluency in French would be an advantage.
The deadline for applications is 9:00am on Friday 25 January 2019.
Interviews will take place on Friday 8 February 2019
