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 even greater results for children with a main focus on the managing our Global Guardian Programme.
Global Guardians is a group of supporters who give a minimum annual £5,000 unrestricted donation for a suggested period of three years. The post holder will seek to grow the Global Guardian Programme through maximising unrestricted income and support for Unicef’s work for children.
To succeed, you will have experience of developing and managing quality relationships with high value individuals, successfully asking face to face for significant financial support. Candidates with an experience of developing successful membership schemes or ’Friends of’ networks are encouraged to apply.
