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 society’s
most disadvantaged citizens — addressing inequity — not only will give all
children the opportunity to fulfil their potential but also will lead to
sustained growth and stability of countries. This is why the focus on equity is
so vital. It accelerates progress towards realizing the human rights of all
children, which is the universal mandate of UNICEF, as outlined by the
Convention on the Rights of the Child, while also supporting the equitable
development of nations.
There is significant untapped
potential to generate flexible funding for UNICEF’s work over the coming 5-10
years in countries of the Europe and Central Asia region. Countries in ECA are
all middle-income, with many fast approaching the high-income threshold. Many
of these have vibrant and growing private sectors, including business,
foundations and high net worth individuals, as well as potential for individual
giving from the general public. UNICEF wishes to increase its capacity to
support country offices to tap into this potential for the benefit of the most
disadvantaged children in the region. This position will support and guide the
ECA Regional Director and concerned Country Representatives, in the leadership
of private sector fundraising and partnerships in order to maximize results for
children. It will provide guidance to the regional and country offices in terms
of strategic direction, fundraising, private sector engagement and longer term
capacity planning including investment funds and market development. Importantly,
the postholder will also directly develop and manage strategic private sector
partnerships focusing on those with regional / multi-country scope.
