Job no: 494223
Work type: Fixed Term Staff
Location: Switzerland
Categories: Alliances and Resource Mobilization, Communication / External Relations, Private Fundraising and Partnerships, P-4, UN and Multilateral Affairs
If you are a committed, creative professional and are passionate about making a lasting difference for children, the world's leading children's rights organization would like to hear from you.
For 70 years, UNICEF has been working on the ground in 190 countries and territories to promote children's survival, protection and development. The world's largest provider of vaccines for developing countries, UNICEF supports child health and nutrition, good water and sanitation, quality basic education for all boys and girls, and the protection of children from violence, exploitation, and AIDS. UNICEF is funded entirely by the voluntary contributions of individuals, businesses, foundations and governments.
Purpose of the Position
There is significant untapped potential to generate additional unrestricted resources for the organization over the coming 5-10 years in countries where UNICEF maintains a direct office presence (as opposed to a National Committee) – these are mostly upper middle income countries, and a growing number of high income countries. PFP is working with regional offices, country offices and other headquarters divisions to initiate organizational changes to help capture this potential, in areas such as office leadership, staff capacity, investment, knowledge transfer and operational effectiveness. PFP's Country Office Development and Support (CODAS) Section is taking the lead in this effort, in collaboration with the Senior Management Team. Working with the Senior Advisor (Regional and Country Support), this position is responsible for progressing the aforementioned organizational changes, as well as proactively seeking and maximizing market growth opportunities, and helping overcome technical barriers to growth.
Key Expected Results
The efficiency and efficacy of the incumbent will impact PFP's ability to provide strong global leadership to grow unrestricted resources from private sector fundraising in countries where UNICEF maintains a direct office presence, in collaboration with the concerned regional and country offices. These additional resources will improve UNICEF's capacity to achieve its programmatic goals, both within the countries where this fundraising is taking place via Other Resources, and globally in the form of Regular Resources.
