Unicef UK - Appointment of Chief Executive (4367)
Join us to create a world safe for every child
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.
We are currently seeking a Chief Executive to deliver our ambitious strategy and our vision to do whatever it takes until every child is safe and able to fulfil their potential. The next Chief Executive’s leadership will be critical as we build on our success, and shape the next chapter of our role as a leading organisation for the world’s children, in an environment of constant change. Reporting to the Board of Trustees, you will shape and evolve Unicef UK’s culture, strategy, systems, structure, programmes, innovation and integrated ways of working to deliver outstanding results and impact for children.
Unicef UK wishes to encourage applications from experienced senior leaders drawn from a wide variety of backgrounds who can drive and inspire change for children. You will be a values-driven, visionary leader with proven experience of shaping organisational vision and strategy. You will demonstrate significant experience in leading and managing complex organisations, strong fundraising skills, and a track record of advocacy and influencing. You will have the ability to build strong relationships across a diverse stakeholder map. Excellent communication skills are essential, alongside a clear passion and commitment to Unicef’s mission.

The role will be based in London and the salary is commensurate with the seniority of the appointment.
We particularly welcome applications from black, Asian and minority ethnic candidates, and candidates with disabilities, 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.
