Senior Data Capacity Lead (Equal Measures 2030)

Date: 10-Nov-2020

Location: Flexible, UKM, GB

Company: Plan International

The Organisation


Equal Measures 2030 (EM2030) is a joint effort of leading regional and global organizations from civil society and the development and private sectors who work together to connect data and evidence with advocacy and action on gender equality, in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).  We believe that data can expose inequality and injustice, motivate change, and drive accountability.


The partnership is a joint effort of organizations from civil society and the development and private sectors, including: Asia-Pacific Resource and Research Centre for Women (Arrow), Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, CLADEM, Data 2X, African Women’s Development and Communication Network (FEMNET), International Women’s Health Coalition, KPMG International, ONE Campaign, Plan International and Women Deliver.


Equal Measures 2030 is hosted by Plan International.  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 support children’s rights from birth until they reach adulthood. And we enable children to prepare for – and respond to – crises and adversity. We drive changes in practice and policy at local, national and global levels using our reach, experience and knowledge.


We have been building powerful partnerships for children for over 80 years, and are now active in more than 70 countries.


The Opportunity


In line with our new strategy, EM2030 has an exciting opportunity for a Senior Data Capacity Lead to join our small but growing and geographically dispersed team.


For this role we are looking for someone with extensive expertise in quantitative data and research and a passion for gender equality and feminist activism. You will provide leadership and vision to our data capacity development work and aim to expand our partnership’s focus on mutual learning and capacity development on the effective use of data in advocacy for gender equality.


In this role the main objectives of the role will include data technical support to help grassroots civil society organisations use data, supporting the uptake of the SDG Gender Index and other EM2030 data and tools, and identifying challenges and opportunities for data use amongst feminist organisations and movements.

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.

Plan International also participates in the Inter Agency Misconduct Disclosure Scheme.
