Part home/Part office (London) based

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 our Chief Marketing Officer, tasked along with other Executive colleagues with developing and achieving our strategy for 2023 through to 2026.

You will be one of the key spokespeople for UNICEF UK, representing the organisation proactively with colleagues within UNICEF, stakeholders, supporters, fundraising regulators, and sector colleagues, and with the media as appropriate. You will also be a part of the Executive team and Extended Leadership Group of UNICEF UK, someone who lives and models our values in all aspects.

You will be an inspirational, strategic leader operating at an executive level. Your history will include leading successful fundraising functions/directorates to setting and achieving ambitious strategic goals and targets, in this technological and digital-driven landscape.

UNICEF UK has partnered with ProspectUs as our preferred partner agency in placing this role.

If you feel you meet some of the criteria but not all, we really hope you'll enquire and learn more. Our dedicated contact at Prospectus Ryan Burdock can advise and support you, on each part of the role and hopefully your application. Please email Ryan Burdock at Prospectus on to arrange a confidential conversation.

Closing date: 5pm, Wednesday 10 January 2024.

Interviews with ProspectUs: 18-23 January 2024.

1st stage interviews with UNICEF UK: 30 January–1 February 2024 via video conferencing (MS Teams).

2nd stage interviews with UNICEF UK: Week commencing 5 February 2024.

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

Our application process: We use a system called "Applied" that anonymises your responses and focuses on your actual skills that are relevant to this role. This benefits you by giving you a greater chance of expressing your skills in this objective selection process.

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.

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.
