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, hope
PFP’s Private Fundraising and Partnerships (PFP) Division works with National Committees (NatComs) and UNICEF country offices to maximize private sector income for programmes that benefit children. The Programme Coordination team, to whom the consultant will report, serves as a ‘broker’ between private sector fundraisers in PFP and National Committees, on the one hand, and UNICEF country offices, regional offices and headquarters, on the other hand.
The team strives to strengthen the link between partners and outcomes for children, ensuring that programmatic results are clear, compelling, deliverable and delivered. The unit achieves this by providing a range of products, including high-quality compelling investment cases and Accelerator propositions; programmatic advice and knowledge through capacity building workshops; development of tools and guidance materials; and providing quality assurance on proposals and reports.
