GBV Case Workers at Plan International

Plan International was founded over 75 years ago with a mission to promote and protect the rights of children.   The organisation was set up by British journalist John Langdon-Davies and refugee worker Eric Muggeridge in 1937, with the original aim to provide food, accommodation and education to children whose lives had been disrupted by the Spanish Civil War. Langdon-Davies conceived the idea of a personal relationship between a child and a sponsor – a model that puts the child at the centre, and remains the core of what we do.  Job Title: GBV Case Workers Location: AdamawaReports to: GBV OfficerPurpose: Plan International Nigeria is seeking mid-level and senior-level candidates with a bachelor’s degree or higher and a minimum of three years of experience working on humanitarian projects funded by bilateral donors or in the civil society sector for the implementation of a GFF  funded project ‘‘Providing essential aid services in the areas of protection and livelihoods for children, adolescents and young adults, especially young women and their children, affected by the conflict inLake Chad Basin (LCB) in Nigeria, Niger and Cameroon’’.
