Chief (Data Analysis Unit), P-5, DRP - New York Headquarters, USA

UNICEF works in 190 countries and territories to protect the rights of every child. UNICEF has spent 70 years working to improve the lives of children and their families. Defending children's rights throughout their lives requires a global presence, aiming to produce results and understand their effects. UNICEF believes all children have a right to survive, thrive and fulfill their potential – to the benefit of a better world.
For every child, results
A key element to achieving results for children is to ensure that good quality data and evidence is generated, analyzed and communicated, particularly on the most vulnerable children. The Data & Analytics Section, in the Division of Data, Research and Policy (DRP), at New York’s headquarters, is the leading unit in the organization with the specific objective of supporting this important task.
The section consists of three teams: the “Data Collection Unit”, the “Data Analysis Unit”, and the “Data Architecture and Communications Unit”. The Chief of the Data Analysis Unit, under the supervision of the Chief of the Data & Analytics Section, supervises and leads the staff of the Unit. This position is key to the success of the data function of the entire organization.
As the Chief of the Data Analysis Unit you will represent the unit in internal and external fora. This will involve working very closely, as one, with the other chiefs and staff members of the Data & Analytics Section. Work with staff members of the broader Division of Data, Research and Policy, UNICEF’s Regional Offices and country offices will constitute an important element of the work that you will be carrying out, with your team. Equally importantly, you will work very closely with other UN agencies, in particular with the United Nations Statistical Division and other UN agencies active in data work that concern children, as well as with a broad range of external partners focused on analyzing and using child-related data.
