Who are Plan International?

Plan International is an independent child rights and humanitarian organisation committed to children living a life free of poverty, violence and injustice.

We have been building powerful partnerships for children for more than 75 years and are now active in more than 70 countries. 

How have Plan International responded to the Ukraine Crisis?

Since March 2022, Plan International has been responding to the crisis in partnership with civil society organisations in Poland, Romania, and Moldova to meet the needs of those affected by the crisis as well as host communities, and we are also extending operations in Ukraine itself.

We are supporting an integrated education and child protection response, incorporating mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS), with cash and voucher assistance (CVA) as a modality. 

The Role

We’re recruiting a Program Manager to work with institutional donors to design, launch, monitor and review multiple projects, ensuring they are delivered on time and to budget. You’ll be working closely with Plan’s technical advisors to ensure relevant support is provided.

If you'd like to join the Plan International response and make an impact on women and children affected by the Ukraine Crisis, we can't wait to hear from you.

The Requirements 

  • Extensive experience in an emergency and/or with a development organisation or INGO 
  • Professional experience managing and implementing humanitarian/development projects 
  • Experience with the management of a multisector project 
  • Good understanding of global humanitarian standards 
  • Ability to work effectively with multiple counterparts in the private, public and NGO sectors  

Location: Chișinău, Moldova

Type of Role: 6 month fixed-term contract with potential to extend 

Closing Date: Monday 3rd October 2022

Due to the emergency nature of our response, and the critical need for colleagues to begin in-country ASAP, we are only able to accept applications from local candidates, or candidates who have the pre-existing right to enter Moldova visa-free for at least 90 days.


Equality, diversity and inclusion is at the very heart of everything that Plan International stands for.

We want Plan International to reflect the diversity of the communities we work with, offering equal opportunities to everyone regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation.

Plan International is based on a culture of inclusivity and we strive to create a workplace environment that ensures every team, in every office, in every country, is rich in diverse people, thoughts, and ideas. 

We foster an organisational culture that embraces our commitment to racial justice, gender equality, girls’ rights and inclusion.

Plan International believes that in a world where children face so many threats of harm, it is our duty to ensure that we, as an organisation, do everything we can to keep children safe. This means that we have particular responsibilities to children that we come into contact with and we must not contribute in any way to harming or placing children at risk.

A range of pre-employment checks will be undertaken in conformity with Plan International's Safeguarding Children and Young People policy. Plan International also participates in the Inter Agency Misconduct Disclosure Scheme. In line with this scheme we will request information from applicants previous employers about any findings of sexual exploitation, sexual abuse and/or sexual harassment during employment, or incidents under investigation when the applicant left employment. By submitting an application, the job applicant confirms their understanding of these recruitment procedures.

Please note that Plan International will never send unsolicited emails requesting payment from candidates.
