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 Creative Team at the UK Committee for UNICEF (UNICEF UK) as Account Manager covering Early Moments Leave (parental leave). The Creative Team is responsible for the high-quality production and design of content, which is featured and distributed on a diverse range of owned, earned and paid channels.
We’re looking for a highly creative Account Manager to work with teams across the organisation on a wide variety of campaigns and projects to produce creative briefs and develop powerful, innovative and impactful creative concepts. You will develop project management best practices and support the Creative Team to ensure efficient workflow and processes, as well as presenting the UNICEF brand and the Creative Team’s skills, processes and ways of working to the rest of the organisation.
You will have experience of project management and workflow tools in a creative team or agency, with a proven track record of driving multiple complex creative projects forward and evaluating at the end. You will be adept at developing creative briefs and working within brand guidelines to produce high quality creative content, and you will have excellent client engagement skills.

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.
