Interim Deployable Education in Emergencies Specialist (Deadline: 9 Nov 2022)


Location: Globally, Flexible

Company: Plan International

Closing Date: 9 November 2022

Job Description

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 85 years, and are now active in more than 75 countries.

The Opportunity 

As the Deployable Education in Emergencies (EiE) Specialist, you will be a key member of Plan International’s Global Hub Education in Emergencies team. While on deployment (which could sometimes be at short notice), you will provide technical support to Plan International’s Country Offices (COs). This normally involves responding to medium and large-scale emergencies to develop, implement, monitor and evaluate EiE programmes. You will ensure that EiE interventions are aligned with the Inter-Agency Network for Education in Emergencies Minimum Standards (INEE MS) and related resources, and other global humanitarian standards, guidelines and tools.

When not on deployment you will contribute to Plan’s EiE workplan as agreed with the team, which may include continued follow up from a distance with deployment countries. This will be done whilst building and maintaining relationships with relevant government departments and key donors.

The Individual 

We are looking to recruit an individual who has significant experience in planning, designing and implementing integrated humanitarian programmes. You will preferably have experience of working in a range of humanitarian contexts (e.g. refugee, conflict, rapid onset, etc.).

An understanding of key EiE issues is essential, as is experience of conducting educational needs assessments and the ability to build on education technical areas with a variety of audiences.

You will have excellent negotiation and representation skills, alongside the ability to work comfortably with diverse staff in a sensitive environment.

It is essential that you are fluent in both written and spoken English; fluency in Spanish, Arabic, French or any other language is desirable.

Plan International believes that in a world where children face so many threats of harm, it is our duty to ensure that we, as an organisation, do everything we can to keep children safe. This means that we have particular responsibilities to children that we come into contact with and we must not contribute in any way to harming or placing children at risk. 

A range of pre-employment checks will be undertaken in conformity with Plan International’s Safeguarding Children and Young People policy. Plan International also participates in the Inter Agency Misconduct Disclosure Scheme. In line with this scheme we will request information from applicants previous employers about any findings of sexual exploitation, sexual abuse and/or sexual harassment during employment, or incidents under investigation when the applicant left employment. By submitting an application, the job applicant confirms his/her understanding of these recruitment procedures. 

Equality, diversity and inclusion is at the very heart of everything that Plan International stands for. Our organisation is based on a culture of inclusivity and we strive to create a workplace environment that ensures every team, in every office, in every country, is rich in diverse people, thoughts, and ideas. 

We will provide equality of opportunity and will not tolerate discrimination on any grounds. We foster an organisational culture that embraces and exemplifies our commitment to gender equality, girls’ rights and inclusion while supporting staff to adopt good practice, positive attitudes and principles of gender equality and inclusion.
