Job Description

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.

For every child, hope . . .

The Public Partnerships Division (PPD) works to strengthen UNICEF's position as a partner of choice for children's rights among governments and inter-governmental actors around the world. The Division is doing this by positioning children’s rights in the intergovernmental and multilateral fora and engaging with governments and public institutions as resource, policy and programme partners. A key premise for PPD is that the engagement with countries should be holistic based on multiple aspects of partnerships, including policy advocacy and resource mobilization.

Under the direct supervision and guidance of UNICEF Senior Advisor in the UK, London, the intern will support the functions of the Senior Advisor, including advancing the partnership between UNICEF, the UK Government, other public institutions and possibly other European partners.

A workplan with achievements for the duration of the Internship and learning opportunities will be agreed upon. Regular meetings with Interns and close contact via email, discussing processes and work related outcomes will lead to a beneficial environment for the Intern.
