Job description

Six month fixed-term contract – January to June 2020


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 Soccer Aid for Unicef Talent Team sits within the Ambassador Relations team at Unicef UK. The team focuses on maximising the support of Soccer Aid for Unicef Talent as well as Unicef Ambassadors and supporters.


As Soccer Aid for Unicef Talent Manager, you will support the development and implementation of the Soccer Aid for Unicef campaign, recruiting, developing and managing celebrity support to allow the Soccer Aid for Unicef talent team to scale up and maximise talent support across all elements of the campaign. This includes support across schools fundraising, extra programming, social media and appeal films.


To succeed, you will have experience of working in a celebrity environment – including talent booking and long-term relationship management and a strong understanding of risk management. You will also have experience of supporting complex cross-organisational projects dealing with multiple stakeholders, preferably a broadcast / televised project.



Closing date: 5pm, Wednesday 20 November 2019.

Interview date: Tuesday, 3 December 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. 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.
