Child Protection in Emergencies (CPiE) Specialist
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.
As the Child Protection in Emergencies (CPiE) Specialist in South Sudan, you will provide technical guidance and support to Plan International’s South Sudan Country CPiE teams to develop, implement, monitor and evaluate child protection programmes. You will ensure that all work has a strong gender focus and that CPiE interventions are linked into longer term programming to guarantee maximum impact in line with Plan International’s Global Strategy.
In this role you will play an integral part in the coordination, resource mobilisation and building capacity of local staff and partners through providing training, coaching and mentorship. You will ensure that CPiE proposal development is of a high quality to attract funding by donors and National Offices and you will also ensure the integration of CPiE into other sectors, such as Education, in order for Plan to remain a strong CPiE actor.
We are seeking to appoint an experienced CPiE Specialist who has over 7 year’s experience in child protection work with a humanitarian organisation. You will have demonstrable experience in providing technical support, building capacities, and designing and delivering trainings and coaching of staff and volunteers. You will also have excellent knowledge of the CPiE issues in South Sudan.
To be successful in this role you will be a strategic thinker who has excellent representation and leadership skills, along with strong analytical and negotiation skills. You will be fluent in English and your writing skills for both research and communication purposes will be excellent.
