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.

We are seeking a proactive and highly organised Governance Coordinator to join the Executive Director’s Office. In this vital role, you will be responsible for delivering the smooth and efficient coordination of all governance activities of Unicef UK, including the work of the Board of Trustees and Audit & Risk Committee. You will be a key point of contact on governance matters, and a source of advice and support for the Executive Director, Executive team, and Trustees, and you will provide efficient administrative support for governance activities.

To succeed, you should have proven experience of supporting the work of trustee boards or governance committees, working collaboratively and cross-organisationally with senior leaders and governors. With excellent attention to detail, you will have proven experience in communicating complex and nuanced information. You must be able to demonstrate that you have a proactive, solutions-orientated approach.

Closing date: 5pm, Monday 17 June 2019.

Interview date: Friday 28 June 2019.

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 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 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.
