Current Hiring Practices and Trends in the Development Sector
- BY David Mackenzie
The fundamental mission of UNICEF is to promote the rights of every child, everywhere, in everything the organization does — in programs, in advocacy and in operations. The equity strategy, emphasizing the most disadvantaged and excluded children and families, translates this commitment to children’s rights into action. For UNICEF, equity means that all children have an opportunity to survive, develop and reach their full potential, without discrimination, bias or favoritism.
UNICEF’s private sector division has a new strategic plan, and ambitious goals to deliver on income, influence and brand recognition. A key driver of increased income is a strong brand and key strategy to deliver that is through engaging content, to both build the brand and engender support. In the new plan UNICEF is bringing together a number of functions in the organization, ensuring a more integrated approach and fostering better collaboration and co-ordination of approaches. Reporting to the Chief of section, this role will lead a newly formed content team as well as a number of freelance individuals and agencies and work jointly with the fundraising content team, in individual fundraising.
