Plan International USA is part of a global organization working with communities in over 50 countries to end the cycle of poverty for children and their families. Our mission promises a better future for children and their communities by equipping them with the skills and knowledge they need to create their own solutions. If you believe that the promise of children far exceeds the poverty they are born into, then don’t just hope for a better future, join our dedicated team to create a better future for all.
The Senior Pricing Associate (SPA) is a member of the Finance, Grants and Contracts (FGC) team and is responsible for the costing/pricing, preparation, and review of proposal budgets and budget narratives submitted to U.S. Government Donors. To develop high-quality proposal budgets and budget narratives, the SPA will be required to: i) work with Plan's Business Development Unit (BDU), senior and technical staff, and FGC team members across multiple technical areas; ii) participate in pre-solicitation and pre-proposal activities for selected bids; and iii) interact with Plan's local and international staff in Plan's country offices, as well as business partners (in both a prime and sub capacity), donors and other stakeholders. The SPA could occasionally be assigned other duties to support business development and other units at Plan, subject to workload and the SPA's past international development experience.
Physical and Mental Demands
Business Development work is often very time sensitive and can be extremely stressful. The successful candidate must therefore be sufficiently resilient, and capable of maintaining a calm, professional focus under such conditions. In turn, Plan strives to create a flexible work environment that includes compensatory time for extensive travel and the privilege to work remotely, at times, in line with our policy. Reasonable accommodations may be made to enable individuals with disabilities to perform the essential functions of the job.
Plan offers a collaborative and engaging work atmosphere with the opportunity to exchange ideas, opinions, and views with a diverse and passionate workforce. International travel is required to any of the 50+ countries where Plan works, including to those countries with difficult or challenging working environments. Travel may be up to 20 percent of time.
