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, innovate…
Child rights are universal, inalienable and indivisible. Yet the pursuit of these enduring rights takes place within a world that is in constant flux. Economic, social and political dynamics, driven by new technologies, actors and challenges, pose important tests for the current and future well-being of children.
The Office of Global Insight and Policy (Global Insight) was established in 2019 to assist UNICEF in interpreting, and engaging in, a rapidly changing world. Global Insight provides UNICEF with intelligence on a range of issues with implications for children and its work, equipping the organization to more effectively shape the global discourse with greater awareness of children’s issues, and preparing it for the future by scanning the horizon for frontier issues and ways of working.
With dedicated expertise in seven policy areas – digital technology, human capital, governance, the environment, society, finance, and markets – Global Insight serves as UNICEF’s internal think tank, scoping frontier issues and emerging practices affecting children that may inform UNICEF’s approach.
How can you make a difference?
Global Insight (OGIP) is looking for an experienced project manager to join its new Strategic Engagement Unit.

Projects include supporting internal communications, improving our knowledge management, building an efficient repository of content and templates, and facilitating meetings to strengthen the strategic engagement functions of OGIP’s work. Through these projects, the Project Manager will enable the Unit and Office to establish, operationalize and institutionalize effective approaches which can then be carried forward in the future. We are looking for a creative and motivated consultant that’ll help us build a solid back office to enable agile and effective operations, which are central to our ways of working.

- Where necessary, assign and coordinate consultants deployed for particular projects.
- Source, build and update lists with key internal and external stakeholders for OGIP communications and partnerships
- Work with Chief of Staff to prioritize and monitor SEU capacity deployment
- Coordinate prioritization for all-staff and Management Team meetings, helping set agenda, and act on both necessary preparations and follow through.
- Gather and/or write notes for key internal meetings.
- Support knowledge management strategy and backend architecture for resources
To qualify as an advocate for every child you will have…
