We are looking for an experienced Chief Information Officer to cover Early Moments leave (parental leave) at the UK Committee for UNICEF (UNICEF UK).
You will join us at a crucial time. As Chief Information Officer, you will oversee the continuation of a substantial transformation journey across key areas of Information and Technology, ensuring it is aligned and integrated with the wider organisation change agenda and achieves time, quality and cost objectives - all to achieve even greater impact for children.
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.
Over the 8 month engagement, you will play a hands on role in the delivery of the Data & Analytics Roadmap, the Finance Business Transformation project, planning of the next phase of UNICEF UK's digital journey and overseeing the delivery of an established information governance agenda. As a member of our extended leadership team, you will contribute to operational and strategic delivery across the organisation, and lead the Information Team, which comprises Data, Digital, CRM, internal IT and projects subteams.
The ideal candidate will have experience of leading a broad digital, data and technology brief within a complex organisational setting, experience of motivating teams to deliver at pace, experience of working within organisations that provide products and services to the general public and in improving the use of data to support income growth.

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 are expecting to move to a hybrid approach (part home/part office based) when our office reopens.
We particularly welcome applications from black, Asian and minority ethnic candidates, LGBTQ+ candidates and candidates with disabilities, 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 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 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.
