The Organisation

Our purpose is to strive for a just world that advances children’s rights and equality for girls.

We have been building powerful partnerships for children for more than 80 years, and are now active in more than 70 countries.

Our global strategy has a specific focus on girls, as they are often the most marginalised and left behind. We have committed ourselves to the ambitious target of reaching 100 million girls over 5 years to ensure they can learn, lead, decide and thrive. This is our contribution to reaching the sustainable development goals, especially those focused on gender equality.

Our organisation is transforming itself to meet this significant challenge everywhere we work.

We need bold, forward-thinking and innovative individuals to lead our country operations, driving change and delivering results that will allow us to reach our target of 100 million girls.

The Role

As Regional Director, you will be responsible for providing leadership to Plan International’s work across 13 countries in the Eastern and Southern Africa region, ensuring that it aligns with and contributes to Plan International’s global strategy and performance standards.

Plan International is going through considerable change globally and in the region, so key to the role is the ability to lead and manage change effectively.

You will be expected to strengthen and develop a high performing leadership team in the region; challenge assumptions; promote innovation in our programming, influence and processes; strengthen Plan International’s external engagement; and raise standards in all areas of Plan International programmes, influencing and operations in the region.

This is a fantastic opportunity to take on the leadership of Plan International’s work in an evolving region, ensuring continued relevance and increased impact in fulfilling the rights of children, especially girls, and their communities and strengthening their opportunities for the future.

Do you have what it takes?

To be successful in this challenging and varied role, you must be able to deliver across three key areas:

Creativity: You must be able to come up with new and effective solutions to the problems of the region, and identify new opportunities for fundraising and to develop our programmes and influencing work. You will be a strong innovator, able to influence others and communicate with a wide range of audiences both within and outside the organisation.

Change: You must be able to effectively manage change throughout the regions, taking the steps that are necessary to ensure Plan International in the region can advance children’s rights and gender equality. You should be skilled at leading people through times of significant transition, ensuring they are informed and engaged. Through your work, you will position Plan International in the region as an organisation that is equipped to respond to the needs of children, especially girls, and have a lasting impact on their lives and futures.

Coaching: You must be able to lead your team onto bigger and better things! You will be skilled at building the capacity of your staff, enabling them to respond to new challenges. You must be able to foster a positive culture of transparency and accountability, ensuring staff across the region live and breathe Plan International’s values (outlined below) and are focused on its goals.

You must be fluent in both written and verbal English. The knowledge of other languages relevant for the region (Portuguese, Arabic, French) would also be beneficial.

Our organisational values are designed to help everyone who works with us achieve our ambitious goals for children, especially girls.
