About Plan International
Plan International is an independent development and humanitarian organisation that advances children’s rights and equality for girls. We support children’s rights from birth until they reach adulthood. We believe in the power and potential of every child. But this is often suppressed by poverty, violence, exclusion and discrimination. And it is 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 all children and especially girls. We are active in over 70 countries across the world.
The purpose and ambition of the EU Office is to advance children’s rights and equality for girls in the EU’s external action. In line with Plan International’s global strategy, One Million Reasons, and the EU Office’s 5-year strategy, we will contribute to ensuring that 100 million girls learn, lead, decide and thrive. We work with the EU in its three roles as a donor, policy-maker and promoter of human rights.
The purpose of the role is to support the Plan International EU Office (EUO) by achieving the Disaster Risk Management (DRM) objectives of the Office as set out in our new five-year strategy 2017-2022.
Over the years, Plan International has scaled up its humanitarian work and operations, and is now recognized as one of the global leaders in child-centered DRM. Plan works in partnership with the world’s largest humanitarian donors, including the EC Directorate-General for European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (ECHO) through the Framework Partnership Agreement (FPA) of 8 Plan National Organisations (NOs) with ECHO.
Plan International EU Office acts as the Global Account Management (GAM) holder for ECHO on behalf of Plan International. As such, the EU Office oversees the overall engagement strategy with ECHO and steers the fundraising process, aiming to maximise funding potential for Plan as a whole and to influence the EC around Plan priorities and approaches on DRM.
The role is responsible externally for ensuring that there is a relevant and coherent engagement approach to ECHO, presenting a “One Plan” face to the donor, and internally for maximising capacities and resources by coordinating our engagement.
