How to apply
Act now and visit www.unicef.org.uk/jobs to apply online. Closing date: 5pm, Monday 8 July 2019. Interview date: Friday, 19 July 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 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 require support in completing the online form or an application form in an alternative format, please contact Supporter Care on 0300 330 5580 during office hours. 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. Registered Charity Nos. 1072612 (England and Wales) SC043677 (Scotland)
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 like-minded institutions, trusts, foundations and statutory bodies with the goal of unlocking strategic funding and contributing to Unicef’s global mission of keeping children healthy, happy and safe. These partnerships support a wide range of Unicef programmes in countries and communities which have the greatest need.
The Programme Funding Manager is responsible for the ongoing management of some of Unicef UK’s complex statutory and institutional grants. Principally, this involves overseeing programme reporting, contributing to proposal development and programme planning, as we seek to expand our portfolio of partnerships while continuing to deliver world-class stewardship to our existing partners.
The successful candidate will have extensive and demonstrable experience of managing complex grants from charitable institutions, statutory bodies or large foundations. You must be comfortable with all aspects of grant cycle management, including proposal development, outcome setting and financial and narrative reporting, preferably on 7 figure grants and in an international development or humanitarian emergency context.
