Plan International Education in Emergencies Specialist Jobs in Nigeria

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 85 years, and are now active in more than 80 countries.

The Opportunity

Plan International Nigeria is implementing several projects which aim to minimize disruption to formal and non-formal education systems in north-east Nigeria, undermined by the armed insurgency, and to restore formal education services; strengthen the protective environment for children and their families, including age and gender appropriate education services; create opportunities for young people affected by the armed conflict to generate income and to improve their life skills.

The EiE Specialist role is designed to provide strategic and technical leadership, through a blend of effective external representation, networking, conceptualising, and designing appropriate education intervention to the needs of the children affected by a dynamic context, as well as ensuring that the technical standards during project implementation are adhered to.

The role also ensures synergy between Plan Nigeria’s EiE interventions and the Minimum Standards enshrined in the Inter-Agency Network for Education in Emergencies (INEE).
