Plan International Policy and Advocacy Advisor Jobs in Kenya

Plan International Policy and Advocacy Advisor Jobs in Kenya

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.

  • Equal Measures 2030 (EM2030) is a unique cross-sector partnership of leading organizations from civil society and the development and private sectors.

  • We work to ensure that girls' and women's movements, advocates and decision makers have the data they need, and in a format they can use, to guide and drive faster progress towards the gender equality commitments in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

  • Equal Measures 2030 supports national partners in seven focus countries (Colombia, El Salvador, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Senegal, and Tanzania) to undertake data-driven advocacy, utilising the SDG Gender Index and other gender equality data and tools.

  • The partnership is a joint effort of organizations from civil society and the development and private sectors, including: Asia-Pacific Resource and Research Centre for Women (Arrow), Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, CLADEM, Data2X, the African Women’s Development and Communication Network (FEMNET), the International Women’s Health Coalition (IWHC), KPMG International, ONE Campaign, Plan International and Women Deliver.

  • The partnership is currently hosted by Plan International.

    The Opportunity

  • As Policy and Advocacy Advisor, you will act as the focal point for a minimum of three national partners in relation to project management, grant management
    and technical support.

  • This will also require coordination across the Equal Measures 2030 Secretariat to ensure projects are connected, leveraged at regional and global levels, and supported by the data, advocacy, communications, and finance teams.

  • In this role, you will also act as the focal point across the Equal Measures 2030 Secretariat for the learning and capacity building pillar.

  • As a new and growing area of work, you will be required to scope opportunities for growth in this area, leveraging existing strengths like the Data-Driven Advocacy Training Toolkit and the expertise of EM2030’s regional and global partners, as well as supporting the Secretariat in designing a forward-looking approach for the entire pillar.

    The Individual

  • We are looking to recruit a committed individual who has proven experience in working on gender equality and/or international development issues across geographies and contexts.

  • You will be able to develop and execute advocacy strategies and influencing approaches, particularly in the Global South.

  • You will also be required to develop and deliver capacity-building approaches to stakeholders based on adult learning principles and peer-to-peer participatory processes.

  • To be successful in this role, you will have strong listening/interpersonal skills and also the ability to distance-manage relationships and work effectively with others in diverse locations and cultural contexts.
