Head of Institutional Funding
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’s Foundation Partnerships team works to deliver additional significant income from private trusts and foundations, institutional donors and statutory partners. In line with Unicef’s global strategy, we have ambitious growth targets over the coming years.
In this senior institutional funding role, you’ll manage a personal portfolio of £1m+ prospects and donors, managing and cultivating partnerships with institutional partners at the highest level. As a senior member of the Foundation Partnerships team, you will line manage team members, develop and strengthen the team’s institutional funding strategy, map the external landscape and share best practice in relation to funding activity. You’ll also work with the Head of Team to develop team plans and financial forecasting for the institutional funding stream.
You’ll have a track record of successfully securing 6-7 figure gifts from institutional donors (e.g. Comic Relief, Big Lottery Fund, Wellcome Trust) through building complex bids, and face to face negotiations. An experienced people manager, you’ll be able support and motivate team members to spot and capitalise on opportunities, develop powerful proposals and reporting and engage new institutional partners.
