Job Description

Communications and Resources Officer

£30,990 - £36,893 per annum


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.

The Child Friendly Cities and Communities team at Unicef UK works to ensure the advancement of children’s human rights in the UK, with a particular focus on embedding children’s rights in cities, communities and local government. We advocate for change to realise children’s rights, we build knowledge and understanding of children’s rights and we promote the participation of children and young people.

As Communications and Resources Officer you will develop, manage and implement communication strategies for the Child Friendly Cities and Communities programme.   You will also plan and produce high quality resources to support our various child rights training programmes.

To succeed in this role, you will have experience of leading on communications within the social justice, human rights, public, educational or children’s sector. In particular, you will have strong desktop publishing and design skills in order to develop high quality resources and publications, including video and audio resources. You will have written for a variety of publications and media, and excel at producing copy that is engaging and compelling. You will have a good knowledge of the key issues affecting children and young people in the UK and a passion for making a difference.
