Partnerships Officer (Alianzas Corporativas) NO/A FTA Santiago, Chile - Open to Chileans Only
The Partnerships Officer is responsible to guide the planning and implementation of the Corporate fundraising strategy with the objective to maximize corporate income and brand visibility for UNICEF; oversees the corporate targets are met, leads new business development, including initiatives through which obtain more pledge donors, and to mobilize the Private Sector Companies in areas and initiatives that promote CSR and children rights.
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. 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.
UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.
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. Working for UNICEF
For every child, an effective response
