Why work for Unicef UK?
Published: 28 Feb 2017 By Unicef
Here at Unicef UK, we’re united by our belief in a better world for children. By working here, you can help us change children’s lives for the better everywhere.
We work collaboratively, not just in teams. On projects like ITV’s Soccer Aid and the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games, we depend on working together to get the best possible results for children. Whatever your role, you’ll have the opportunity to join our ground-breaking work.
If you’re ambitious, motivated and talented and would like to make an impact, join us to help our ambitious work to help children in danger – and make a change for tomorrow’s children.
“The opportunities we're given here are like no other charity. We work on incredible, innovative projects that change the world for children.
The impact I can have with my colleagues here - whether we're lobbying governments, working with our world-class celebrity ambassadors, or putting on "best in class" events like Soccer Aid or the Halloween Ball - is like no other place I’ve worked.”
- Anand Modha, community fundraising development manager, Unicef
