This is an exciting time for Plan International as we embark on a new strategy for 2017-2021.

It underpins everything we do, guiding all our work in all parts of the federation.

To achieve greater change in children’s lives we will dramatically transform how we operate and we need bold, forward-thinking and innovative individuals to steer our country operations, driving change and delivering results that will allow us to transform the lives of 100 million girls globally.

The role of Country Director is a truly influential position that comes with full accountability for Plan International’s operations and results. You will help to realise our vision by shaping and implementing Plan International’s strategy at a country level. Your talents as a leader and communicator will inspire Plan International employees and volunteers while engaging partners, government, local communities and our other stakeholders. And, on an operational level, you will bring a focused approach to key responsibilities such as risk management, income growth, the disbursement of project funds and the oversight of projects.

As Country Director you will lead a high performing team to deliver Plan International’s programme and influencing work, creating positive change for girls through advocacy and campaigns and ensuring that we are able to respond to the emergency and development needs of the most marginalised children.

With an increasing focus on the remote communities in the North, East and Central regions of the country, our work helps more than 400,000 children to access quality and inclusive education, protection from all forms of abuse, improving maternal and neonatal child health and supporting their transition to young adulthood.

At present Plan Uganda implements a portfolio of approximately 16.5 million Euros every year of which 75% is from grants from both bilateral and multilateral donors e.g. UNICEF, GAC, the Dutch, Norwegian, Japanese and Danish Governments, ECW and DFAT and 25% from sponsorship funding.

Plan International Uganda currently has programme operations in 3 of the 4 regions of the country with 9 field offices including a significant refugee response programme for the South Sudanese refugees entering Northern Uganda.

The Country Director is accountable for the management and leadership of a team of over 250 staff with a Country Leadership Team of seven, whom report directly to the Country Director.

As part of the broader organizational effort to transform Plan International Uganda to achieve greater impact, Plan Uganda will soon be going through a transformational change and strategy development process which will require the leadership of the Country Director and strong experience in change management.

Do you have what it takes?

As Country Director, you will be adept at developing people, building relationships, and creating a strong sense of purpose and collaboration for all those around you. You will bring genuine passion, determination, and fresh thinking to our work – with the aim of expanding both our reach and our impact, and making change work for millions of children.
