Job Details

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.

This is a great opportunity to join the UK Committee for UNICEF (UNICEF UK) as a Special Events Manager within the Partnerships & Philanthropy Team.

As Special Events Manager, you will play a pivotal part in an ambitious team tasked with delivering £850,000 in income. You will manage and deliver events within our annual programme, which includes high-value fundraising events, third-party partnerships and stewardship activity. You will have a particular focus on leading on the third-party strategy and developing new partnerships.

To succeed, you will have experience of producing and presenting event partnership proposals and of leading the delivery of a major fundraising event aimed at a high-value audience. Communication and decision-making skills, plus a strong attention to detail will be critical for this role.

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

Closing date: 5pm, Friday 11 February 2022.

Interview date: Tuesday 22 February 2022 via video conferencing (MS Teams).

We are gradually moving back to our offices on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford, East London and we anticipate most colleagues will work one or two days a week in the office and the rest of the time from home.  We are happy to discuss other flexible options to suit your circumstances.

We particularly welcome applications from black, Asian and minority ethnic candidates, LGBTQ+ candidates, disabled candidates, 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.
