    Default job background
    Full time
    Description
    Plan International was founded over 75 years ago with a mission to promote and protect the rights of children.

    The organisation was set up by British journalist John Langdon-Davies and refugee worker Eric Muggeridge in 1937, with the original aim to provide food, accommodation and education to children whose lives had been disrupted by the Spanish Civil War.

    The Opportunity

    We recognise that our staff and associates may work in or travel to hostile and complex environments that present unique safety and security risks, and we are proactive in identifying and mitigating these risks.

    We understand that security management should be an enabler rather than a barrier.

    Plan International is committed to fulfilling its duty of care to our staff and providing a safe and secure environment so that we can better fulfil our purpose and objectives.


    Plan International is looking for experienced Safety and Security Specialists and Advisors who can be available on short notice (within 72 hours) for contracts of varying duration in various (often high-risk context) countries to gap fill, support scale up and build capacity in inclusive safety and security management.

    The pre-qualified candidates will be included on an external roster and will receive on-call assignments, after receiving training on Plan International's safety procedures and tools.

    The assignments will take place in countries where humanitarian operations are taking place and will have a variable duration of up to six months.

    The Requirements

    Deep conceptual understanding of security risk management and risk assessment processes
    Experience working in high-risk areas, including disasters and fragile and conflict-affected states
    Experience working in an international NGO
    Experience in conducting security risk assessments.
    Experience providing technical support and oversight to security programmes.
    Experience in security capacity building in a variety of contexts.
    Understanding of field level representation with key stakeholders and coordination with peer NGOs and UN actors.
    Experience in Humanitarian access negotiation/strategy.
    In-depth knowledge or work experience in post-conflict and/or complex emergency environments.
    A clear understanding of humanitarian principles.

    Excellent planning, management and coordination skills, with the ability to organise a substantial workload comprised of complex, diverse tasks and responsibilities.

    Strong written and spoken English
    Ability to work in an additional language, e.g. French, Arabic, or Spanish – desirable
