  • Full time
  • £33,000 – £35,000

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.

Unicef UK has been working in Scotland for many years in fundraising, programme delivery in schools, hospitals and local authorities and advocating for the rights of children in Scotland. Following successful growth in the past few years, Unicef in Scotland is now recruiting for a High Value Partnerships Lead to cover early moments leave.

As High Value Partnerships Lead, you will identify and cultivate high value and influential prospects and develop cases for support for philanthropists, foundations and the corporate sector. This will include capitalising on opportunities, opening new markets and engaging new prospects.

To succeed in this role, you will have a strong track record of developing and managing quality relationships with high value partners and of working successfully with senior volunteers. You will have experience of personally asking and securing high level donations and of maximising partnerships through other non-financial/advocacy activity. We are looking for a highly competent individual, able to spot opportunities and with a good understanding of the different motivations that individuals or companies may have to support charities.

This is a fantastic opportunity to help Unicef UK deliver positive outcomes for children in Scotland and around the world.
