Role

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 part of our ambitious and successful Scotland Team.

The partnership lead role is a key position for the UNICEF in Scotland Team. You will join a team of high-performing colleagues, aiming to maximize income and support for UNICEF in Scotland. This will be achieved through building high value relationships with new donors and enhancing existing partnerships. You will directly manage the newly created partnership manager role.

You will succeed in this role if you have a track record in personally securing donations from philanthropic sources, at the five and six figure level. You will also have proven team management experience; with a good track record of supporting line reports to feel empowered, valued and able to work on their own initiative. You will be passionate about what UNICEF is trying to achieve for children.

The UK Committee for UNICEF in Scotland team are gradually moving back to our office in Edinburgh, 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, 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.
