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 Philanthropy team at Unicef UK seeks to engage, secure support from and steward philanthropists and their families. We have ambitious growth targets over the coming 5 years and this role will play a key part in enabling the team to achieve even greater results for children.
As Philanthropy Executive, you will support the Philanthropy team to grow our supporter base of those giving £5,000 plus. You will do this by assisting the development of our key philanthropic products which includes the 7 Fund Giving Club, Global Guardian programme and activities associated with the NextGen community.
To succeed, you will need to have excellent communication skills, both written and verbal as well as strong coordination skills and a ‘can-do’ attitude. You will have experience of producing a range of communications, written and oral for high value supporters or equivalent. If you have experience of supporting event development and working cross-collaboratively within a charitable organisation, we’d be delighted to hear from you.
