You will manage relationships with senior communications contacts in our corporate partners (and/or their agency partners) and devise and implement ambitious media and communication strategies to promote UNICEF UK and our partnerships; working with others in the Media and broader Communications department to deliver communications outputs across these key areas.

You will also have internal leadership of a multi-functional team to deliver holistic marketing and communications plans (paid, owned and earned).

To succeed in this role, you will have:

  • strong collaboration skills
  • proven experience of working in a fast-paced media team, ideally with experience of corporate communications work

Currently working from home

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.
