Plan International is looking for qualified applicants for the following open position

Job Title:Emergency Response Specialist, Flexible – Plan International

Location: Flexible, Flexible

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

  • Plan International’s global strategy applies a full spectrum approach where Disaster Risk Management (DRM) is an integral part of everything the organisation does for children and girls, especially in fragile settings. A new DRM vision was developed in 2018 highlighting Plan’s ambition of becoming a global leader and the NGO partner of choice for promoting gender equality and protecting girls’ rights in disaster and conflict settings, working at the nexus of development and humanitarian efforts.
  • Plan International has over the last 15 years developed a significant DRM portfolio (Euro 153 mill in FY 17) and focused its efforts on both mainstreaming DRM within its long term development programmes as well as building the necessary disaster preparedness and response capacity across the organization to ensure the delivery of timely and appropriate programmatic responses to crisis as per sector quality standards, The Core Humanitarian Standards, (CHS).
  • As Emergency Response Specialist you will be responsible for developing our ability to respond effectively to emergencies. You will travel frequently to Plan International Country Offices or Regional offices and when required deploy at short notice to support scale up of emergency responses or to provide capacity building support to Country Offices.
  • You will work with operational support departments (Finance, Logistics & Procurement, People & Culture, Fundraising, Security, IT, Systems) to support the integration of emergency response into standard tools, guidance and systems. In addition, the role will work on preparedness activities ensuring the organisation is ready to respond once an emergency occurs. The post holder will deploy to crises as needed to support scale up and strengthening emergency response operations and represent Plan International in relevant external fora and inter-agency coordination groups. You will ensure all work is developed and implemented in ways that improve gender equality and empowers girls and women and will be responsible for upholding and implementing relevant aspects of all Plan policies and procedures.

The Individual
