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.

Unicef UK’s Rights Respecting Schools Programme is an innovative and creative programme that aims to embed the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) in the ethos and practice of schools. The vision of the Programme is that all children in the UK learn in a rights respecting school community where the CRC is fully embedded in values and practice.  We are looking for a Professional Adviser to join the team, working in London and the South East.

Supported by the Senior Professional Adviser, you will promote the Rights Respecting Schools Programme in schools and local authorities, supporting schools to achieve and maintain their Rights Respecting School status. You will contribute to the promotion, development and growth of the Programme within your region and you will build relationships with key stakeholders.

A confident and results focused individual, you will have proven experience of working strategically at a senior level with children and young people in UK schools. You will also be an advocate for children’s rights, demonstrating a strong commitment to the CRC. Strong IT skills are essential, including the ability to work efficiently remotely and manage multiple demands and priorities.

We particularly welcome applications from black, Asian and minority ethnic candidates, from candidates with disabilities, and from men, because we would like to increase the representation of these groups at this level within Unicef UK. We want to do this because we know greater diversity will lead to 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.
