About Plan International Australia

Plan International is a global not-for-profit, working to change the world so that all children can live happy and healthy lives, and so girls in all their diversities can take their rightful place as equals.

For 80 years we’ve worked hand-in-hand with local communities, so babies can survive their first 1000 days, so children can learn in safe environments, so girls can strive for work outside the home, so young people can speak up for their rights. We know that girls are the most marginalised by poverty, and for too long have been held back from reaching their full potential. This is why we work with all children to solve poverty but especially girls.
We have a long history, but our approach is new. We’re secular, and we view the children, families and local communities we work with as our partners and our equals.

Possibility. Opportunity. Equality. Partnership. Love. Humanity. This is what we stand for.

Stand with us. Stand for equality.

Plan International Australia is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to strengthening and fostering inclusion, equity and diversity as part of its workplace culture. We strongly encourage people from a diverse range of genders, cultures, abilities and experiences to apply for this role.
