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 is embarking on an ambitious finance transformation project, focused on transforming our financial management technology, business processes and data structures. This is a rare opportunity for a Senior Project Coordinator to support this critical work.

As Senior Project Coordinator, you will assist an external Project Manager in day-to-day task management for the project team and you will play an essential role in ensuring the right people are in the right place at the right time, with all they need for quick action and decision making.

To succeed, you will have experience of coordinating complex full-service delivery life cycle projects.  You will have experience of coordinating technology-led business transformation or implementation projects.  You will excel at working with large, diverse, and remote project teams, proactively problem solving and resolving issues like conflicting priorities and time allocation.

Act now and visit our website, via the link to apply online.

Closing date: 5pm, Thursday 11 March 2021.

Interview date: Monday, 22 or Tuesday, 23 March 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.
