UNICEF is a non-profit organization that works tirelessly to ensure children survive, wherever children’s lives are at risk. As part of the UN, we are active in more countries and have saved more children’s lives than any other humanitarian organization. We are passionate about the well-being of children around the world. Our mission is to promote the importance of child protection, child rights and child development.

Working at UNICEF Canada

Our charity is committed to diversity and inclusion within its workforce, and encourages qualified candidates from all national, religious and ethnic backgrounds, including persons living with disabilities, to apply to become a part of our organization and pursue successful careers.

UNICEF’s workforce is made up of different categories of staff reflecting various levels of responsibilities and duties. Each category of staff has its own requirements. All staff must share our organization’s values of diversity and inclusion, integrity and commitment and meet our core employment competencies of communication, working with people and drive for results. These competencies are behaviours that are used to achieve desired results for UNICEF.

UNICEF Canada’s four year strategic plan calls on the organization to double gross revenues, re-launch the UNICEF brand in Canada and increase engagement with Canadians in order to improve more children’s lives globally. As a result, UNICEF Canada is recruiting a number of new roles to assist in the achievement of this plan.
