Job Number: 499226 | Vacancy Link
If you are a committed, creative professional and are passionate about making a lasting difference for children, the world's leading children's rights organization would like to hear from you.
For 70 years, UNICEF has been working on the ground in 190 countries and territories to promote children's survival, protection and development. The world's largest provider of vaccines for developing countries, UNICEF supports child health and nutrition, good water and sanitation, quality basic education for all boys and girls, and the protection of children from violence, exploitation, and AIDS. UNICEF is funded entirely by the voluntary contributions of individuals, businesses, foundations and governments.
Job Organizational Context
The fundamental mission of UNICEF is to promote the rights of every child, everywhere, in everything the organization does — in programs, in advocacy and in operations. The equity strategy, emphasizing the most disadvantaged and excluded children and families, translates this commitment to children's rights into action. For UNICEF, equity means that all children have an opportunity to survive, develop and reach their full potential, without discrimination, bias or favoritism. To the degree that any child has an unequal chance in life — in its social, political, economic, civic and cultural dimensions — her or his rights are violated. There is growing evidence that investing in the health, education and protection of a society's most disadvantaged citizens — addressing inequity — not only will give all children the opportunity to fulfill their potential but also will lead to sustained growth and stability of countries.
In an effort to measurably improve UNICEF's ability to deliver better results for children, and to also support the Human Resources transformation strategy, the Division of Human Resources (DHR) is embarking on a transformational process in a number of key areas, including a robust performance management and career development and a fast and effective talent acquisition, management and recruitment. DHR in New York Headquarters (NYHQ) is looking for a Communication Specialist who can help the Division engage various internal audiences and communicate its work effectively to all stakeholders.
The position is located in the Division of Human Resources, reporting to the Chief, HR Capacity Building and Learning Coordination, and closely working as part of the OneHR network. The Section provides services to orient personnel in their roles as well and transform their skillsets and competencies to ensure they meet the organizations needs to deliver on its strategic plans. In a decentralized learning environment, the function ensures that Capacity Development initiatives are coordinated and are aligned, capturing and disseminating innovation and best practices. It would also ensure that HR priorities and transformation efforts are appropriately articulated and disseminated Organization wide.
Purpose of the Position
Under the guidance of the Chief of the Capacity Building and Learning Coordination Section, the Communications Specialist provides technical and operational support in developing, implementing and monitoring communications and engagement strategies and associated activities/products to raise awareness on the HR transformational initiatives supporting the organizational culture change, and to mobilize stakeholders to engage and contribute to DHR activities.
