- Policy and Advocacy Advisor, UK
£39,500 a year - Contract
6 month fixed term contract from mid-August
The Policy and Programmes Directorate supports our aims by ensuring that we deliver the highest quality policy and programmes. We constantly enhance programme quality and effectiveness, raise income from institutional donors and drive change through setting and influencing policy agendas.
This is an exciting opportunity to drive forward relevant areas of Plan International UK’s policy change objectives with specific reference to gender equality and the rights of adolescent girls.
As Policy and Advocacy Adviser you will develop and implement effective influencing strategies towards the UK Government and other actors, alongside building and managing influential advocacy and policy relationships with Government, NGOs, networks and partners. You will produce influential and persuasive policy briefings and analysis and monitor the global gender sector ensuring our work is highly visible, particularly with UK audiences.
With experience in advocacy work on girls’ rights issues, you will have undertaken policy analysis and written policy briefings and reports on relevant areas of international development policy. You will have previously managed and developed influencing relationships and coordinated networks/coalitions, and will be able to network and foster partnerships with a range of internal and external stakeholders. An excellent understanding of relevant policy discourse on gender equality and girl’s rights in development, is essential; a focus on violence against women and girls and an understanding of gender in fragile and humanitarian settings will be advantageous.

Interviews will take place on Wednesday 11 July 2018
