Job Details

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 time to join the UK Committee for UNICEF (UNICEF UK) in heading up our Institutional Partnerships team.

We have ambitious plans over the next five years, with aims to increase support from institutional foundations and statutory partners, particularly with strategic partners on a global scale.

In taking up this position, you will develop the team’s strategic direction and lead them to manage UNICEF UK’s partnerships with institutions and statutory partners at the highest level, developing multi-million-pound growth opportunities.

We welcome everyone who has proven leadership and management experience, a track record of securing and developing six or seven-figure partnerships with institutional/statutory donors and excellent skills in relationship management. You may have stepped away from the world of institutionary and/ or statutory fundraising; if this role interests you, we would love you to apply as well. This role will expose you to senior stakeholders, if you have been successful in negotiations and influencing institutions this will appeal to you.

Act now and visit the website via the apply button to apply online.

Closing date: 5pm, Friday 30 December 2022.

Interview date: Wednesday 11 January 2023 via video conferencing (MS Teams).

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 and disabled candidates 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.

If you require support in completing the online form or an application form in an alternative format, please contact Supporter Care on 0300 330 5580 during office hours.

If you do not hear from us within 14 days of the closing date, please assume your application has been unsuccessful on this occasion. Please note that we only provide feedback to shortlisted candidates.
