Jobs in international development
Programme Specialist – Emergencies
UNICEF is the world’s leading organisation working for children and their rights in more than 190 countries. As champion of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, UNICEF works to help every child realise their full potential.
Within our newly re-structured Communications Department, the International Programme Advisory (IPA) Team constitutes the UNICEF UK hub of technical expertise on UNICEF programmes and global development priorities. The Team positions itself as the cross-organisational ‘go-to’ Team for UNICEF UK staff for information, assets and intelligence on and around UNICEF field programmes and the wider international development agenda.
You will provide an advisory service to UNICEF teams to ensure that high quality, brand-consistent and audience-specific messages about UNICEF field programmes are conveyed at all times. You will advise colleagues working within fundraising, communications and public affairs, on issues mostly (but not exclusively) within your lead area of Emergencies, ensuring that UNICEF’s programmatic approaches, strategies and comparative advantages are understood and highlighted at all times. You will also provide advice and technical input about UNICEF programmes in UNICEF’s relationship with donors, supporters and other key stakeholders.
You will, ideally, have substantial experience working in a field office of a major international development agency, and have a background of working with donors and other relevant key audiences. Knowledge of current international development and humanitarian issues and broad, current knowledge of UNICEF’s work in all sectors, is essential.
