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 75 years, and are now active in more than 70 countries.

The role will ensure that The Child Protection Policy (CPP) is fully embedded in accordance with the CPP Implementation standards as applicable to their area of responsibility.
You will review and map the GEC s existing Child Protection programming in Sierra Leone and produce guidelines for the Smart Project. Tin addition, you will represent the project to consortium partners and externally to ensure best practice across working with marginalised groups of children, as well as monitoring and documenting the progress of child protection activities.
You will also help promote awareness and understanding of the project, identifying and developing training manuals, guidance documents, and toolkits on key Child Protection issues.
In order to succeed in this challenging and varied role you will possess significant experience in field-based child protection program management experience, preferably within a humanitarian, international development setting.
