About Plan International: Plan International is an independent global child rights organization committed to supporting vulnerable and marginalized children and their communities to be free from poverty.
By actively connecting committed people with powerful ideas, we work together to make positive, deep-rooted and lasting changes in children and young people’s lives.
We place a specific focus on girls and women, who are most often left behind. For over 80 years, we have supported girls and boys and their communities around the world to gain the skills, knowledge and confidence they need to claim their rights, free themselves from poverty and live positive fulfilling lives.
We are inviting candidates for the following positions:
1. Birth Registration Innovation Advisor (Regional Office), Nairobi
Plan International recognises birth registration as a fundamental right of every child. Despite the obligation of governments to register all births, levels of birth registration across the developing world remain critically low.
In fact, over 230 million children under the age of 5 remain unregistered and without a birth certificate, meaning they are invisible in the eyes of the law.
To assist in these crucial efforts, Plan is seeking a dynamic and highly skilled individual either already working or looking to enter into the field of international development, to join a highly motivated, entrepreneurial team that use innovation and technology to break down the traditional barriers to universal birth registration.
This is an exciting role, with significant field level exposure, overseas travel and regular access to governments, UN organisations and partners from both the private sector and civil society.
The BRI Advisor will work with the Digital Birth Registration Manager and Head of Birth Registration Innovation on a range of activities further detailed in the accountabilities section.
2. Counter Fraud Specialist (Regional Office), Nairobi
This post is part of the Counter Fraud Unit (CPU) and will support the Head of Counter Fraud in establishing frameworks to reduce the risk of loss of funds and resources from fraud, corruption, mismanagement and criminal activity.
Although based in the Plan Regional Office (Kenya) the role is global in nature and the post holder can be deployed on assignments to any of the countries in which Plan operates.
The role reports to the Head of Counter Fraud based in Plan International HQ.
