Job description

Part home/Part office (London) based

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.

This is a great opportunity to join the UK Committee for UNICEF (UNICEF UK) as Senior UK Policy Adviser (Child Poverty and Inequality).

You’ll be joining at an exciting time for our UK Policy and Advocacy team, as we get ready to launch a new UK advocacy campaign focused on early years, which you will have an active role in shaping and delivering, including helping us to explore how we engage effectively with marginalised groups

You will lead our policy work focusing on child poverty and inequalities, with an emphasis on breaking cycles of poverty in early childhood. It will require working closely with mental health and education focused colleagues, in our larger UK Policy Team and across the Advocacy and Programmes Departments.

Having an in-depth understanding of policy-making processes and how to develop effective influencing strategies will be needed to achieve success in this role. You will have excellent research and writing skills and a good understanding of the policy context of child poverty and/or other UK child wellbeing topic areas.  

Closing date: 5pm, Friday 15 July 2022.

Interview dates: 26 and 27 July 2022 via video conferencing.

In return, we offer:

  • excellent pay and benefits (including flexible working, generous annual leave and pension, big brand discounts and wellbeing tools)
  • outstanding training and learning opportunities and the support to flourish in your role
  • impressive open plan office space and facilities on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park
  • an open culture and workplace with colleagues who share our values, enjoy their work and are motivated to do their utmost for children
  • the opportunity to work in a leading children’s organisation making a difference to children around the world

We are gradually moving back to our offices on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford, East London and we anticipate most colleagues will work one or two days a week in the office and the rest of the time from home.  We are happy to discuss other flexible options to suit your circumstances.

We particularly welcome applications from black, Asian and minority ethnic candidates, from disabled candidates, 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 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 the Supporter Care line 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.
