Organization: Union for International Cancer Control (UICC)
Closing date: 22 Feb 2019
The Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) is a non-government organisation based in Geneva which serves an international and diverse population of cancer organisations to unite the cancer community to reduce the global cancer burden, to promote greater equity and to integrate cancer control into the world health and development agenda. We have achieved this by building a membership base of over thousand organisations and engaging in partnerships with more than 60 organisations across the UN, academic, health and private sector.
UICC convenes members and partners to encourage collaboration and new thinking through keystone events (World Cancer Congress, World Cancer Leaders’ Summit and World Cancer Day). Through our capacity building activities, UICC supports its members do a better job tomorrow than they do today and increase their impact by scaling up their relevance, reach and sustainability in their own settings. With our members and partners, we drive forward the key advocacy priorities building upon key international agreements (the Sustainable Development Goals, the Global Action Plan on NCDs and the 2017 Cancer Resolution at the World Health Assembly) to ensure that these global goals and targets are translated into national action.
UICC has a team of 45 people based predominantly in Geneva, Switzerland led by a CEO, reporting to a Board of Directors. It has an annual income of approximately $10m and has plans to grow significantly in the coming years. The UICC works in new offices in Geneva situated close to the United Nations and the World Health Organisation, with whom it has formal relations.
Capacity Building is one of the three key pillars of UICC’s work, alongside Advocacy and Convening. Through the development of specific capacity building initiatives and programmes, UICC seeks to create an influential cancer community with the skills, knowledge, and networks to achieve effective cancer prevention and control. Within the Capacity Building portfolio, there are four key workstreams; leadership development; learning; grants and fellowships; building capacity for advocacy, with a cross-cutting emphasis on regional engagement.
Summary of position

Organization: UN Children’s Fund
Closing date: 22 Feb 2019
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.
For every child,
UNICEF in the Europe and Central Asia (ECA) Region is expanding work in the areas of social protection and social and economic reforms for children and adolescents.
To have meaningful impact for children in the region, UNICEF must support the analysis of regional trends, identification of opportunities and partnerships for UNICEF to influence economic and social policies, nurture excellent partnership with governments to make social protection systems fit for purpose, and leverage resources for the most vulnerable children.
The Region is therefore shifting to a more strategic and purposeful approach for advocating, implementing and demonstrate results at scale on child poverty reduction measures, public expenditures, appropriate social protection systems, public finance management and budgeting for children, as well as pro-active targeting of opportunities for strategic partnerships– within countries and across clusters of countries.
Given the critical role of regional bodies in the ECA region, (e.g. the EU and Council of Europe), UNICEF seeks to leverage increased resources for children across the region. Enhanced engagement with EU institutions, based on a common agenda for children and adolescents, is a key priority in this regard. Other work includes strengthening the social protection programmes of several countries to become more child-focused; advocacy with various stakeholders for child-friendly investments, and increased South-South and Horizontal Cooperation within and beyond the Region. Furthermore, develop and support partnerships with the private sector to leverage in those countries where potential is greatest and across clusters of countries, covering diverse types of strategic engagement in the area of social protection.
How can you make a difference?
The Regional Advisor, Social Policy and Economic Analysis will lead the Social Policy Section and work in close partnership with all the countries across the region to facilitate and advocate for effective and fit for purse changes in social protection systems that impact child poverty reduction measures, public expenditures, appropriate social protection measures, public finance management and budgeting for children in Europe and Central Asia.
