    Plan International is evolving in response to shifts in international development and humanitarian response. We are doing this so we can continue to make a stand for children’s rights.

    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 believe in the power and potential of every child. But this is often suppressed by poverty, violence, exclusion and discrimination.

    Having identified girls as the most marginalised group, they will be our ongoing focus as we work towards helping 100 million girls learn, lead, decide and thrive within their communities.

    As we embark on this ambitious and exciting journey, we are recruiting for talent across the globe.
