Marketing Officer (Philanthropy Marketing), P-2, TA (364 days), # 123814, Purpose Marketing & Brand Building, PFP, Geneva, Switzerland


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 fulfil their potential. Across 190 countries and territories, UNICEF works for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world.

And we never give up.

UNICEF’s Division of Private Fundraising and Partnerships (PFP) has ambitious goals to deliver on income, influence, and brand recognition. A key driver of increased income is a strong brand, and a key strategy to deliver that is through engaging content to both build the brand and engender support.

PFP is seeking ways to engage the major donor community of the UNICEF International Council, to better position the platform and UNICEF for Ultra High Net Wealth Individuals (UHNWIs).

The UNICEF International Council is a unique community of people – many from the world’s leading business families and global influencers – who want to optimize their philanthropic investments for children by bringing together their funding, influence, and expertise.

The Council Focuses On

As a select and motivated group of donors, Council members combine their resources to make a more equitable world for children.
  • Making UNICEF more impactful by leveraging members’ funding, perspectives, and networks
  • Attracting untapped resources by advocating for UNICEF and showcasing its work
  • Helping UNICEF direct the world’s focus to children by empowering the next generation and amplifying their voices
PFP is looking to double the number of members of the Council over the next several years and has identified a marketing approach to position UNICEF and the Council as a partner of choice for UHNWIs.

The PFP Purpose Marketing and Brand Building Team is looking for an organized, versatile content marketing strategist who can support UNICEF’s communications and marketing work for the UNICEF International Council.
