Job Description

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.

This will involve ensuring that the monthly reports are produced in timely manner, analysed and shared with each budget holder. You will also maintain stewardship to safeguard the country programme funds from any financial risks ranging from direct implementation to exchange control issues, all whilst ensuring that the programme is delivered in an effective manner.

The Individual

You will have a professional financial/accounting qualification (CPA or equivalent) and knowledge of the international financial reporting standards.
