Digital Programming Lead At Plan International

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 80 years, and are now active in more than 70 countries.

The Opportunity

As a leader in the global movement for girls’ rights, our ambition is to take collective action so that 100 million girls learn, lead, decide and thrive. These ambitions require that we work in new ways and unleash our full creative potential. It is the role of the Digital & Innovation Team to nurture creativity and support teams to develop new impactful offerings in the areas of programming, influencing, fundraising and operations. The team is deployable to where it is most needed and provides hands-on support from the early stages of identifying a challenge statement through to the realisation of scalable impact for girls. The Innovation Team is also responsible for creating an enabling environment for innovation to flourish, including a network of innovators, skills building in human-centred design methodologies and an ecosystem or relevant partners.

The Digital Programming Lead will support the design and development of global programming models across Plan International’s Area of Global Distinctiveness (AoGDs). The position will ensure that technology is integrated across Plan International’s programming in a way that increases its overall efficiency and effectiveness while ensuring sustainability and delivering deep and lasting impact. The postholder will also ensure that ICT4D is effectively included in business development processes to maximise proposal success. They will champion ICT4D internally through active leadership support to an internal community of practice and will represent Plan International externally at industry conferences, communities of practice, and donor convenings.

About You

You bring demonstrable experience of leading ICT4D strategies or large ICT4D projects with proven success in winning large donor proposals in the role of ICT4D technical lead.

You will have experience of working in at least two or more of Plan International’s programme areas – education, adolescent sexual reproductive health and rights, early childhood development, youth economic empowerment, child protection or other related fields ideally in a multi country, regional or global context.

An understanding of human-centered design and practical experience of utilising the techniques in a business context, preferably for social impact and of training both ICT4D and general program staff on ICT4D concepts and how to analyze and identify development challenges that can be solved by ICT4D solutions is essential
