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. UNICEF is funded entirely by the voluntary contributions of individuals, businesses, foundations and governments.

The fundamental mission of UNICEF is to promote the rights of every child, everywhere, in everything the organization does — in programmes, 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 favouritism. 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 fulfil their potential but also will lead to sustained growth and stability of countries.

In Tanzania, UNICEF has been on the ground since 1985. The UNICEF Zanzibar Field Office currently comprises of 13 staff working in the following sectors: Health, Nutrition, Child Protection, Education, HIV/AIDS, WASH, Social Policy and Child Participation. UNICEF Tanzania is looking to recruit a Social Policy Specialist to support its social policy portfolio in Zanzibar in 2018. The scope of work entails management and delivery of technical support in the areas of child poverty measurement and analysis, child-sensitive social protection, public finance for children, and child-focused decentralisation and local governance.
