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 have been building powerful partnerships for children for over 80 years, and are now active in more than 70 countries.
GFFO Project Manager - LC
Type of Role: 3 Year FTC
Reports to: Lake Chad Programme Coordinator and WARO DRM Programme Specialist
- Plan International has full-fledged Country programmes in three out of four affected countries in the Lake Chad Basin. Since 2016 Plan International is coordinating and harmonizing its response to the Lake Chad crisis through the Lake Chad Programme, currently coordinated by the Lake Chad Programme Unit.
- Plan International Germany is supporting this programme right from the beginning through projects focusing on Child Protection in Emergencies and support to survivors of (sexually related) Gender Based Violence, among others funded by the German Federal Foreign Office (GFFO) through a multi-country intervention in Nigeria, Cameroon and Niger.
- With the new strategic phase of the Lake Chad Programme, which will also include the Nexus between humanitarian-development and peace building (called social cohesion), GFFO is willing to shift its support from project based funding support to programme based funding support - with a focus on the protection outcomes and humanitarian targets of the new Lake Chad Programme strategy and framework.

The latter acts as prime contractual partner of GFFO.
- The main objective of this position is to support the smooth implementation of the GFFO funded pilot programme intervention across the three countries and to act as interface between the key GFFO intervention stakeholders (CO implementation teams, Lake Chad Programme Unit and Plan International Germany).
- Demonstrable experience of organizational representation and engagement with humanitarian donors
- Well developed written and oral communication skills in French and English. This includes effective negotiation and representation skills.
- Ability to work independently and as a team player who demonstrates leadership and is able to guide local and international staff and also able to work with disaster affected communities in a sensitive and participatory manner.
