Risk and Research Manager
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 role is based in the Resource Hub Team, in the Partnerships & Philanthropy division (Fundraising). The Resource Hub delivers strategic writing, partner research, risk screening and administrative support.
The Risk and Research Manager leads our cross-organisational risk screening process for selected contacts and organisations, and also undertakes high quality risk-based research. You will provide research profiles and insight on high level donors, partners, advocates and prospects to support the work of a variety of teams across Unicef UK. This role offers a high level of autonomy and you will be expected to work independently, organising your own workload and coordinating the screening process, with minimal supervision.
To succeed, you will have proven experience of prospect research and due diligence as well as experience of a variety of research resources, such as online databases. You will have excellent verbal communication skills, and the ability to write short and long research profiles to a high standard.
