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 ICT Applications Manager.


This is a new role delivering reliable and responsible applications management to over 350 colleagues. You will have sound technical knowledge of applications security, performance monitoring, data management and reporting. Previous experience of some of our key systems including SharePoint, M365, Salesforce, UNIT4, PowerBI, Zendesk or Asana will be needed.


You will be able to motivate and communicate with colleagues in all areas of the organisation, providing well-founded and honest advice on options for improvement of business outcomes as well as dealing with day-to-day technical and user support issues. If you have a track record of delivering high-performing applications, a commitment to improving business effectiveness and the ability to effectively communicate and present knowledge to a variety of audiences, we want to hear from you.

In return, we offer:

  • excellent pay and benefits (including flexible working, generous annual leave and pension, big brand discounts and wellbeing tools)
  • outstanding training and learning opportunities and the support to flourish in your role
  • impressive open plan office space and facilities on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park
  • an open culture and workplace with colleagues who share our values, enjoy their work and are motivated to do their utmost for children.
  • the opportunity to work in a leading children’s organisation making a difference to children around the world


Our application process: We use a recruitment platform called “Applied” that anonymises your responses and focuses on your actual skills that are relevant to this role. This benefits you by giving you a greater chance of expressing your skills in this objective selection process.


Our office is located on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford, East London. Colleagues work at least one day a week in the office and the rest of the time from home.


We particularly welcome applications from black, Asian and minority ethnic candidates, LGBTQ+ candidates and disabled candidates because we would like to increase the representation of these groups at this level at UNICEF UK. We want to do this because we know greater diversity will lead to even greater results for children.


UNICEF UK promotes equality, diversity and inclusion in our workplace. We make employment decisions by matching business needs with skills and experience of candidates, irrespective of age, disability (including hidden disabilities), gender, gender identity or gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, or sexual orientation.


We welcome a conversation about your flexible working requirements, personal growth, and promoting a workplace where you can be yourself and achieve success based only on your merit.


The successful candidate will be required to apply for a criminal records check. A criminal record will not necessarily bar you from working with us. This will depend on the nature of the role and the circumstances of your offences.


We only accept online applications as this saves us money, making more funds available for us to help ensure children’s rights.


If you require support in completing the online form or an application form in an alternative format, please contact Supporter Care on 0300 330 5580 during office hours.


If you do not hear from us within 14 days of the closing date, please assume your application has been unsuccessful on this occasion. Please note that we only provide feedback to shortlisted candidates.
