Fixed term – 12 months; maternity cover
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.
We are looking for an outstanding Head of Fundraising Quality & Compliance to join the Public Engagement directorate at the UK Committee for UNICEF (UNICEF UK). This is a newly-formed directorate, and we are embarking on an exciting period of change to maximise the income, influence and impact we deliver for children.
As Head of Fundraising Quality & Compliance, you will lead on providing fundraising regulatory expertise to the organisation, working with teams to ensure our fundraising is open, honest and legal – in line with our commitment to the Fundraising Regulator. A key part of the role is the sharing of clear and easy to understand information to support teams’ understanding of what is expected of them from a regulatory and best practice perspective, and in doing so help create the environment for maximising income and influence.
To help achieve this, you will have a strong knowledge of factors shaping fundraising regulation and an excellent understanding of data protection as it impacts fundraising and marketing activities. You’ll be skilled at working collaboratively to deliver best practice fundraising outcomes and in considering the needs and wishes of our supporters to create an outstanding supporter experience.

We are normally based on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford, East London but while our office is closed, this role will work from home or from wherever makes you happy. We are expecting to move to a hybrid approach (part home/part office based) when our office reopens.
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.
