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.
Unicef UK’s Foundation Partnerships team builds and nurtures high value partnerships with institutions, trusts, foundations and statutory bodies with the goal to unlock strategic funding and contribute to Unicef’s global mission of keeping children, healthy, happy and safe. These partnerships are key to supporting a wide range of Unicef programmes in countries which have the greatest need.
The Programme Funding Manager will manage the programme reporting for the DFID UK AID Match partnership led by Unicef UK. Principally, this involves managing narrative and financial programme reporting, contributing to proposal development and programme planning, and working closely with country and regional offices to ensure effective flow of programme information for effective partnership management.
The successful candidate will have extensive experience of major funding partnerships with DFID or institutional donors. You must be comfortable with all aspects of programme management within an international development context, specifically logframes, risk monitoring and budgetary finance management, including forecasting. Experience of seven figure grant management and working on DFID Aid Match grants is highly desirable.
