Senior Project Manger
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.
Part of our Strategy department, the Project Office at Unicef UK is a new function created to expedite the development of new ideas, opportunities or initiatives that have the potential to either change how we work significantly – or how we deliver impact for children.
This is a rare and exciting opportunity for a Senior Project Manager to lead the newly formed function and build a team to deliver a service that will be truly game-changing for our work and impact for children.
Ambitious and highly collaborative, you will excel at senior level engagement, team management and project delivery. Our ideal candidate will have significant experience managing multi stakeholder, fast-paced projects.
Act now and visit www.unicef.org.uk/jobs to apply online.
Closing date: 5pm, Tuesday 28 May 2019.
Interview date: Thursday 6 and Friday 7 June 2019.
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.
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. CVs will not be accepted.
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.
