Full Time
Contract Type

Join Unicef’s Corporate Partnerships team and lead a transformational new partnership between Unicef and Dove.

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.

At Unicef UK, we firmly believe that companies can play a crucial role in changing the world for children and are currently recruiting a Corporate Partnership Manager to help us in this goal.  Our corporate partnerships team is made up of 20 colleagues, from a diverse range of backgrounds, managing partnerships with major companies including Unilever, easyJet, Arm and Manchester United.  We work hard and believe in building a strong team ethos to support each other, and we recognise that life involves juggling priorities and you don’t need to be in the office to do your best work. 

As Corporate Partnerships Manager, you will set up and manage a new multi-million, multi-year partnership between Unilever brand Dove and Unicef.  Launched in June, the partnership brings together two leading global organisations to help 10 million young people in Brazil, India and Indonesia gain better self-esteem and body confidence by 2022.

From working with programme experts to deliver on-the-ground impact, to brand and marketing specialists to create a global consumer facing campaign, you will enjoy huge variety and have the opportunity to drive forward something truly transformational.

We are interested in hearing from candidates with diverse professional experience: charity, agency or private sector. Our ideal candidate will enjoy developing strong relationships and have excellent communication and problem solving skills.  You will have a track record of meeting and exceeding targets and successful project management. 

In return, we offer:

  • Excellent pay and benefits (including flexible working, generous annual leave and pension, big brand discounts and wellbeing tools)
  • Outstanding training and learning opportunities  and the support to flourish in your role
  • Impressive open plan office space and facilities
  • An open culture and happy workplace with colleagues who share the same values and goals, enjoy their work and are motivated to do their utmost for children.
  • The opportunity to work in a leading children’s organisation making a difference to children around the world



If you have any specific questions relating to the role, please contact Leisha Braithwaite (Head of Partnerships Development) or Michelle Agyakwa (Resourcing Manager) at recruitment@unicef.org.uk

Act now and visit www.unicef.org.uk/jobs to apply online.

Closing date: 5pm, Monday 19 August 2019

We will review applications as we receive them and will contact candidates for an informal discussion ahead of formal interviews on 28 August 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 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.

We are happy to talk about flexible working, personal growth, and to promote a workplace where you can be yourself and achieve success based only on your merit.

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.

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 during office hours.

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.
