Programme Specialist – Child Nutrition and Early Childhood Development
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.
The International Programme Engagement Team at Unicef UK operates as a hub of technical expertise on Unicef programmes, providing Unicef UK colleagues with information, assets and intelligence on and around Unicef field programmes and the wider international development agenda.
In this role, you will lead the planning and delivery of cross-organisational campaigns and initiatives on Nutrition and Early Childhood Development, and will ensure that they are aligned to Unicef programme priorities, funding gaps and programmatic approach. As the sole Programme Specialist in this area, you will also represent Unicef UK as an expert on Unicef Nutrition and ECD programming and will provide partner-facing advice and technical input to develop our relationships with donors, supporters and other key stakeholders.
To succeed, you will have experience of working with Corporates, Foundations, Government and/or Institutional donors to support the development of complex programmatic proposals, working to a high level of technical accuracy. You should have substantial experience of working in a field office of a major international development agency, together with knowledge of current trends, research, and funding patterns in international nutrition programming. The ability to develop mutually beneficial relationships, both within and outside the organisation, is also essential.
