Consultancy : Information Management Officer, Geneva (3 months)


Under the overall guidance of the Chief of Strategic Planning, the consultant will work as a member of the Strategic Planning team and will report to the Planning and Monitoring Specialist.

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.

Background and context

UNICEF’s Private Fundraising and Partnerships (PFP) Division in Geneva, Switzerland coordinates and provides support to National Committees and country offices in all of UNICEF’s private sector fundraising and partnership activities, in cooperation with regional offices and with other headquarter divisions. The work of PFP is guided by the UNICEF Private Fundraising and Partnerships Plan 2014–2017. The Plan lays out a common vision and framework for private sector fundraising and partnerships at all levels of UNICEF and for National Committees.

PFP is in the process of developing the next Private Fundraising and Partnerships Plan (PSFP) 2018–2021. This new Plan will build on the successes to date, adjust based on lessons learned and adapt to the changing aid and private sector environment and the new 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

As part of the new Plan, PFP is also developing an online Planning, Monitoring and Reporting Platform that will enable National Committees, country offices and PFP to develop their plans, in line with the Private Sector Plan and to easily monitor and report on results. In the absence of a dedicated project manager to coordinate the development of such a complex project, the Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation Specialist in Strategic Planning Section will step in as a project manager. This will take a considerable amount of time of the Planning and Monitoring Specialist and hence the need for additional human resource to support the other routine planning and monitoring functions.
