Fundraising Officer – Acquisition
Part time – 21 hours
Circa £33,000 pro rata per annum

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 Direct Marketing team is responsible for recruiting and developing support for Unicef’s work from individual members of the public. We work across a range of channels to recruit and engage fundraisers so that we can increase our income from these supporters. We’re a
high-performing, friendly and supportive team, where attention to detail and teamwork deliver award winning results. 

We are seeking two enthusiastic and self-motivated Fundraising Officers to join our team – one sitting within Acquisition, and one in Retention. Within Acquisition, you will manage a number of fundraising products and audiences, such as challenge events and community groups, with particular responsibility for all stages of marketing campaigns, including pre-campaign planning and test development, scheduling, data selections, liaising with agencies and internal stakeholders, financial management, results monitoring and end of campaign analysis. In Retention, you’ll be responsible for providing excellent stewardship and supporter communications to fundraisers, such as through challenge events, DIY events and community groups, as well as supporting our high value supporters such as schools and faith groups.

If you already have a track record in Public Fundraising across a range of media channels and enjoy working in a busy office environment, this role will offer you a great opportunity to grow your existing skills. To succeed, you should excel at managing multiple projects at the same time, be confident managing income and expenditure budgets, and be able to build effective relationships to ultimately implement campaigns that deliver the best results for children.

Act now and visit to apply online. Please state clearly in your application, which role you are interested in.

Closing date:  5pm, Wednesday 24 April 2019.

Interview date: Friday, 3 May 2019.

We particularly welcome applications from black, Asian and minority ethnic candidates, and candidates with disabilities, because we would like to increase the representation of these groups at this level at Unicef UK. 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 Basic Disclosure from Disclosure Scotland. 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.

If you require support in completing the online form or an application form in an alternative format, please contact Supporter Care on 0300 330 5580.

If you do not hear from us within 14 days of the closing date, please assume your application has been unsuccessful on this occasion. Please note that we only provide feedback to shortlisted candidates.

Unicef UK is a registered charity that raises funds for the emergency and development work of the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) around the world. Unicef UK also runs domestic programmes, working with schools, hospitals and local authorities to support child health and well-being in the UK. Founded in 1956, Unicef UK is headquartered in London, and has more than 250 employees and 200 volunteers.

Unicef provides nutrition, water, sanitation and protection for children caught in emergencies. It has permanent offices in more than 190 countries around the world and coordinates relief when emergencies like earthquakes, flooding or violent conflict, strike. Unicef provides emergency aid supplies such as water containers and nutrition supplements. It also supplies vaccines for one in three of the world’s children. Beyond life-saving supplies, Unicef also offers safety and learning opportunities for children through protected child-friendly spaces and schools.

Unicef doesn’t receive any funding from the UN budget and Unicef UK’s prime task is to raise money from the public to support Unicef’s work. Unicef UK is also funded by charitable trusts and foundations, government departments and corporate partners.

Unicef UK has its own projects and works with schools, hospitals and local authorities in the UK to promote the rights of children and young people. The Rights Respecting Schools Award aims to put children’s rights at the heart of schools in the UK. The award recognises a school’s achievement in supporting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child both within the school and beyond.

The Unicef UK Baby Friendly Initiative was launched in 1994 and is designed to support breastfeeding and parent-infant relationships by working with public services to improve standards of care. The charity supports best practice by NHS trusts, other health care facilities and higher education institutions and recognises those that have achieved the required standard through an accreditation process.

Unicef UK is also working with a small number of local authorities, such as Derry & Strabane, Glasgow, Leeds, Newcastle and Tower Hamlets, to transform services for the most vulnerable children through a child rights based approach. The Child Rights Partners programme was launched as a three year pilot in November 2013 and focuses on children in care or leaving care and services for young people with drug and alcohol problems.

Unicef UK says it is committed to a positive and friendly work environment and sound work-life balance. It offers a range of employee benefits.
