Job description

Fixed term, 10 – 12 months
Normally based in Stratford, East London but while our office is closed, this role will work from home 

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.

The International Programmes Engagement Team is the hub of technical expertise within Unicef UK on Unicef’s global programming, priorities, funding and programme travel and security. We are currently recruiting for an Operations Manager to join the team.

As International Programmes Operations Manager, you will have two principal areas of focus; ensuring that funds raised by Unicef UK are accurately and efficiently transferred to the appropriate international programmes, and co-ordinating the safe, efficient and effective travel of Unicef UK staff and supporters to Unicef’s international programmes.

You will have experience of managing financial and information systems, including programme reporting, as well as managing and implementing safety and security policies and procedures, including responding to crisis situations.  You will also have excellent interpersonal skills, and be able to quickly build effective working relationships with colleagues across the organisation.

Act now and click on the link below to apply online.

Closing date: 5pm, Monday, 26 October 2020.
Interview date: Tuesday, 3 November 2020.  Interviews will take place via video conference.

We are normally based on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford, East London but while our office is closed, this role will work from home or from wherever makes you happy.

We particularly welcome applications from black, Asian and minority ethnic candidates, LGBTQ+ candidates, candidates with disabilities, and from men, because we would like to increase the representation of these groups at this level. We want to do this because we know greater diversity will lead to 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 are happy to talk about flexible working, personal growth, and to promote 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 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.
