Programme Support Officer
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 Rights Respecting Schools Award (RSSA) team works with schools in the UK to create safe and inspiring places to learn, where children are respected, their talents are nurtured and they are able to thrive. We offer a genuine opportunity to help transform UK schools for children working with nearly 5,000 schools. Around 1.7 million children in the UK go to a Rights Respecting School.
We are looking for a self-motivated and enthusiastic Programme Support Officer to join our central team who provide guidance and support to schools. This is a new role, so you will have the opportunity to develop and strengthen administrative systems whilst responding to the Rights Respecting Schools Award’s needs. Your role will include responding to school email and telephone enquiries, organising and promoting training and keeping our brand new database up-to-date with school progress.
Act now and visit www.unicef.org.uk/jobs to apply online.

We particularly welcome applications from LGBTQ+ candidates, candidates with disabilities, and from men, because we would like to increase the representation of these groups at this level. We want to do this because we know greater diversity will lead to greater results for children.
