Working for UNICEF
More than just a job
What we do
Globally, UNICEF is the driving force that helps build a world where the rights of every child are realized. In Ethiopia, UNICEF is the go-to agency for children and children’s rights. Working for UNICEF is clearly more than a job; it’s a mission to make the world a better place for children.
UNICEF Ethiopia 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. We are able to influence decision makers at both national and regional levels and turn the most innovative ideas into reality.
Headquartered in Addis Ababa, we work on the ground with a presence in all regions of the country and are a strong partner of the Government of Ethiopia in realizing its Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP) and the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
For the highly trained and committed professional, UNICEF Ethiopia offers unique opportunities for challenging, effective and rewarding work. Its mandate is to advocate and promote programmes that meet the special needs of women and children. UNICEF at national and regional levels involves its staff in a wide range of issues in a fast-developing Ethiopia.
We employ committed professional to work in our five focus areas: Child Survival and Development, Basic Education and Gender Equality, HIV/AIDS, Child Protection and Policy Advocacy and Partnerships. We also employ staff with expertise in administration and finance, human resources, information technology, supply and logistics as well as external relations and communication. UNICEF’s presence in humanitarian crises means that we also seek experts in emergency preparedness and response.
