Executive Assistant to the Deputy Executive Director, Partnerships
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.
We are currently recruiting for a highly organised and self-motivated EA to join Unicef UK. As Executive Assistant to the Deputy Executive Director, Partnerships, you will provide proactive and effective support, facilitating the efficient running of the Partnerships Directorate and leading on projects agreed with the Deputy Executive Director.
We are looking for someone with experience in a busy EA role, providing both one to one and team support, planning and coordinating meetings and events, financial administration and servicing meetings.
To succeed, you will have significant experience of providing high level administration support at senior management or board level, including complex diary management, planning and coordinating major meetings and events.
Organised and proactive, you will be comfortable working in a fast-paced environment, managing conflicting priorities and competing demands. You will be a confident communicator, able to develop positive relationships with external contacts and partners, inspiring trust and confidence.
This is a great opportunity to provide support at the highest level and gain insight into strategic projects at a world leading charity.
Act now and visit www.unicef.org.uk/jobs to apply online.
Closing date: 12 noon, Tuesday 23 April 2019
Interview date: Tuesday, 7 May 2019
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. 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.
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.
We only accept online applications as this saves us money, making more funds available for us to help ensure children’s rights. CVs will not be accepted.
