UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.

Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.

And we never give up.


For every child, results

UNICEF delivers change by combining high-quality programmes at scale, harnessing innovation and collecting evidence, in partnership with Governments, other United Nations partners, civil society, the private sector, communities and children. It uses these to leverage wider change nationally and globally through advocacy, communications, and campaigning. UNICEF also builds public support around the world to volunteer, advocate, and mobilize resources for the cause of children, and works with partners to achieve an even greater impact.


How can you make a difference?

As a senior member of the Advocacy section in UNICEF’s Division of Communication, the post holder will lead the development of an advocacy and communications strategy on maternal and child nutrition, and lead the implementation of that strategy. The post holder will work collaboratively with colleagues in UNICEF’s Division of Communication, Programme and other Divisions, country and regional offices, external partners, and others.


Key functions/accountabilities:

  •  Develop an advocacy and communications strategy (2018-2021) to ensure UNICEF and partners realize their ambitious goals on maternal and child nutrition.
  • Identify opportunities for collaboration with other advocacy priorities of UNICEF and partners in the areas of child survival, growth, and development.
  • Provide strategic communication inputs to the development and execution of UNICEF’s global communication initiatives and campaigns in support of UNICEF’s mission, objectives, and brand.
