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.

This is a great opportunity to join the UK Committee for UNICEF (UNICEF UK) as our Trusts and Foundations Manager.

The Trusts and Foundations Manager (in Scotland) will join a team of high-performing colleagues, aiming to maximise income and support towards positive outcomes for children. You will do this through building an effective portfolio of grant funders in Scotland and also support the effective management of information and processes within the team.

If you have successfully secured five and six-figure gifts from trusts, foundations or high-net-worth individuals, we want you. You may have done this remotely or in person and have built great essential skills in negotiating. Your hard-won experience in developing and managing high-quality relationships with trusts, foundations, and high-net-worth individuals, will be equally needed, in this role.
