Programme Development Roster (Education, WASH, Youth Economic Empowerment Specialisms)


£38,771 per annum

Plan International UK strives to advance children’s rights and equality for girls all over the world. 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 have been building powerful partnerships for children for over 75 years, and are now active in more than 70 countries.

We are seeking to build our programme development capacity by creating a pool of individuals with programme development experience in specialist sectors. Successful applicants will be considered for specific roles that are anticipated on upcoming proposal processes. Specific roles would vary in duration depending on the nature of the opportunity, but would generally be expected to be offered on short term contracts (between two and six months in length).

You will provide surge technical support to the design of programmes in our priority sectors (Education, WASH, Youth Economic Empowerment) and lead on specific assigned proposal development processes in close coordination with relevant Country Offices and consortium partners.

You will have proven experience of developing high quality proposals and/or tenders for institutional donors, particularly DFID, multilaterals or the EC, and of working remotely with multiple countries and partners to develop proposals/tenders within tight time frames. You will also be a confident networker with experience of liaising with donors and supporting staff to engage with institutional donors (e.g. DFID, EC, multilaterals). Overseas experience and programme implementation experience would be an advantage, and we would be particularly interested in your application if you have technical experience in Education, WASH or Youth Economic Empowerment.

The deadline for applications is 9:00am on Monday 20 March 2017

It is anticipated that that interviews will take place during week commencing 20 March 2017

As a result, some of our roles are subject to an Enhanced Disclosure by the Disclosure and Barring Service.
