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.
In this role as the Global Advocacy Manager you will support the Global Head of Profession for Policy and Advocacy in the Gender Transformative Policy and Practice (GTPP) Department of Global Hub to manage implementation of the newly refreshed Global Advocacy Strategy 2022-27, known as the GLAS. The refreshed GLAS was launched in September 2022 to align with Plan International’s new Global Strategy All Girls Standing Strong Creating Global Change and informs the organisation’s advocacy work over the next five years (2022-2027). It provides a shared strategic framework that connects advocacy efforts across Plan International offices and supports choices and priority-setting at each level of the organisation. It puts girls’ and young women’s agency, leadership and organisation at the heart of our advocacy and reflects significant contextual shifts (COVID-19 pandemic, escalating humanitarian and climate crises) and our commitment to principles of human rights, social justice, anti-racism, decolonization, localisation, inclusion and intersectionality.
You will manage implementation of the Global Advocacy Strategy (GLAS) across the Plan International Federation, facilitating effective linkages across thematic agendas and offices, and support integrated local-to-global advocacy plans. You will support the piloting and implementation of a monitoring framework currently being developed to track progress against the GLAS Goals and will develop best practice for key approaches to guide implementation. You will also coordinate and lead new global policy agendas which underpin the successful implementation of the GLAS.
Experience of managing advocacy strategies across multiple countries to achieve impact in global processes, including coordination of advocacy and strategic communications, ideally within an INGO
Understanding and experience of engaging with multiple external stakeholders to achieve influencing impact, including governments, multilateral agencies and INGOs
Strong political awareness and understanding including understanding of intergovernmental political dynamics
Sound understanding of children’s rights and gender equality, and rights-based approaches likely based on experience of working within an NGO, a UN agency, a government department, or other relevant institutions
Experience of drafting and producing compelling policy and advocacy briefings and other resources
Able to consult, gather and integrate feedback into concise and accurate products
Strong organisational and problem-solving skills, able to manage multiple demands, prioritise competing workloads, deliver high-standard work to tight deadlines and plan effectively
