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 time to join the UK Committee for UNICEF (UNICEF UK) as we have ambitious plans over the next five years with aims to increase support from foundations, particularly with strategic partners on a global scale, by both growing existing relationships and developing new ones.

The Head of Foundation Partnerships is responsible for developing the team’s strategy, leading on operational plans, budgeting, reporting and monitoring, whilst delivering against agreed annual targets.

To succeed in this role, you should be able to inspire the team to deliver growth, have excellent skills in relationship management and an ability to negotiate and influence senior stakeholders, whilst fostering collaboration among diverse stakeholders.
