Asia Programme Development Officer £37,427 - £39,346 per annum

Plan International UK strives to advance children’s rights and equality for girls all over the world. 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 have been building powerful partnerships for children for over 75 years, and are now active in more than 70 countries.

As a Programme Development Officer you will be working closely with resource mobilisation teams in Country Offices and Regional Offices. You will scope and evaluate new opportunities from new and existing institutional donors in Plan countries and will lead on the development of new high-quality proposals and tenders for institutional donors (particularly the EC, DFID, Big Lottery Fund, Comic Relief and multilaterals). The position will require some international travel and is likely to focus on Asia, but as there is a flexible model within the team, we will also consider applicants with significant experience in the Middle East and Africa.

You will have experience of developing high quality proposals and/or tenders for institutional donors, and of working remotely with multiple countries and partners to develop proposals and tenders within tight time frames. You will be a confident networker with experience of liaising with donors and supporting staff to engage with donors like DFID and the European Union. Experience of living and working in developing countries is essential in this role.
