Technical Specialist - Education

from Plan International UK
Closing date: 25 Oct 2019

£40,805 per annum

Plan International UK is a global children’s charity. We work to give every child the same chance in life.

The 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. Sitting within the Directorate, the Development Programmes Unit (DPU) supports Country Offices by helping them to design high quality programmes, and by raising the funds from institutional donors needed to implement them.

We are recruiting a Technical Specialist, focusing on Education. In this role, you will contribute to technically strong, gender-sensitive or transformative, Education proposals and provide targeted support to the largest and most complex projects. You will also provide in-country implementation technical support for prioritised projects and as such will be required to travel overseas for up to 25% of the time.

You will have a track record of developing strong fundraising proposals targeted at institutional donors related to Education, along with experience of implementing and/or advising on Education programmes in developing countries. With a good understanding of the funding and policy environment pertaining to Education, and of best practice in programming, you will be able to contribute to the design and delivery of good quality gender-sensitive or transformative Education interventions.

The deadline for applications is 9:00am on Friday 25 October 2019

Interviews will take place on Wednesday 6 November 2019
