Job description

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 Resource Hub at Unicef UK empowers colleagues to deliver best in class relationship management, by providing sector-leading professional services such as prospect research, risk screening and strategic writing for our Partnerships and Philanthropy teams. As a result of growth, we are currently recruiting for an additional Prospect Research Manager to join the team.


The new Prospect Research Manager will work alongside one other Prospect Research Manager to provide high quality research, scoping projects, mapped networks and biographies for Relationship Managers across our Partnerships and Philanthropy fundraising teams, on both existing and potential supporters.


To succeed in this role, you will have experience of high-value prospect research, and its application in high-level fundraising best practice within a charity or other non-profit organisation.  You should have demonstrable experience in supporting fundraising teams to manage relationships and a high value prospect pipeline.  Knowledge of GDPR is also essential.


This is a great opportunity to use your prospect research skills to help us to raise more funds so that we can deliver more for the world’s children. 


Closing date: 5pm, Thursday 28 January 2021.

First Interview date: Tuesday, 9 February and Wednesday, 10 February 2021 via video conferencing.


We are normally based in 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.
