UNICEF ensures more of the world’s children are vaccinated, educated and protected than any other organisation. We have done more to influence laws and policies to help protect children than anyone else. We get things done. And we’re not going to stop until the world is a safe place for all our children.
This is a great opportunity to join the UK Committee for UNICEF (UNICEF UK) as an Institutional Funding Manager.
UNICEF UK’s Foundation Partnerships Team builds and nurtures high-value partnerships with like-minded institutions, trusts, foundations, and statutory bodies with the goal to unlock strategic funding and contribute to UNICEF’s global mission of keeping children, healthy, happy and safe. These partnerships are key to support a wide range of UNICEF programmes in countries which have the greatest need.
In this role, you will be responsible for providing operational support on UNICEF UK’s key institutional and statutory partnerships, including those with FCDO UK Aid Match, Jersey Overseas Aid and the Isle of Man Government. You will work closely with a range of internal and external stakeholders, including fund managers and counterparts at other institutional funding partners.
The successful candidate will have proven grant management experience of high value, strategic statutory and/or institutional funding partnerships. You must be comfortable with all aspects of programme management, within an international context, specifically logframes, risk monitoring and strong budgetary finance management skills (including forecasting).

In return, we offer:
- excellent pay and benefits (including flexible working, generous annual leave and pension, big brand discounts and wellbeing tools)
- outstanding training and learning opportunities and the support to flourish in your role
- impressive open plan office space and facilities on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park
- an open culture and workplace with colleagues who share our values, enjoy their work and are motivated to do their utmost for children.
- the opportunity to work in a leading children’s organisation making a difference to children around the world
We are gradually moving back to our offices on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford, East London and we anticipate most colleagues will work one or two days a week in the office and the rest of the time from home. We will happily discuss other flexible options to suit your circumstances.
We particularly welcome applications from black, Asian and minority ethnic candidates, LGBTQ+ candidates, disabled candidates, and from men, because we would like to increase the representation of these groups at this level at UNICEF UK. We want to do this because we know greater diversity will lead to even greater results for children.
UNICEF UK promotes equality, diversity and inclusion in our workplace. We make employment decisions by matching business needs with skills and experience of candidates, irrespective of age, disability (including hidden disabilities), gender, gender identity or gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, or sexual orientation.
We welcome a conversation about your flexible working requirements, personal growth, and promoting a workplace where you can be yourself and achieve success based only on your merit.
The successful candidate will be required to apply for a criminal records check. A criminal record will not necessarily bar you from working with us. This will depend on the nature of the role and the circumstances of your offences.
We only accept online applications as this saves us money, making more funds available for us to help ensure children’s rights.
