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.


Key to achieving this objective is ensuring the public supports our work and gives generously. The Direct Marketing Team at Unicef UK inspires members of the public to support Unicef’s amazing work.  We do this using a wide range of media channels and across a number of successful fundraising products.


We are looking for new Direct Marketing Managers to develop and deliver our fundraising strategy. Working across either acquisition or retention, you’ll deliver quality fundraising, excellent supporter experience, and drive long term income for children. You’ll also work in collaboration with a wide range of teams at Unicef UK and with our sector leading agency partners.


If you enjoy working across teams and on a wide variety of projects, in a fast-paced and ambitious environment, this role will offer you a great opportunity to have a big impact. We’re a high-performing, friendly and supportive team, where innovation and collaboration deliver award winning results.


Please indicate which role or roles you’re interested in, in your application.


Closing date: 7 February 2021

Interview date: Tuesday 16 February and Thursday 18 February 2021 via video conferencing


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 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 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.
