UNICEF is the leading children’s organisation, reaching children in more than 150 less-developed countries around the world. We work with local communities, organisations and governments to make a lasting difference to children’s lives.


We have an opportunity for an exceptional Digital Editor to join our Digital Hub. You will be responsible for creating, editing and maintaining a variety of engaging online content for the UNICEF UK websites. Ensuring a high quality standard is maintained at all times, you will regularly review the website to make sure it is kept up-to-date and that new and existing content meets editorial and SEO guidelines. You will also play a key part in encouraging cross-organisational ownership of digital by ensuring non-digital colleagues are equipped and supported to produce high quality content within their teams.


With proven web editorial experience, you will have a good eye for detail and the ability to identify good visual designs on the web, as well as a background in working with designers and developers, and using content management systems. Knowledge of Photoshop, email marketing, HTML and CSS is essential, along with excellent communication and influencing skills.

You will also keep up-to-date with current digital trends in order to create new concepts and ideas for engaging web content that will benefit UNICEF.

We only accept online applications as this saves us money, making more funds available for us to help ensure children’s rights. CVs will not be accepted. CRB checks will be carried out on successful candidates.
