About UICC

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.

Organization: UN Children’s Fund
Country: Switzerland
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. To do this you will…

  • Undertake an evidence-based analysis and mapping of economic and social policy development trends across the region with related policy developments, with attention to measuring the impact of economic and social transition on excluded and marginalized children and women as well as the impact of poverty and decentralization on the most disadvantaged and marginalized young people in the region.
  • Using a convening and facilitator role, partner with country offices and counterparts in the region to articulate a way forward on how to operationalize social protection systems to positively impact children and bring results at scale. Such way forward would be developed within the context of a regional agenda for child poverty reduction and investing in children, public finance management, budgets for children, governance, decentralization and local planning for children, social protection measures and transfers for disadvantaged children.
  • Support Country Offices on planning and development of Social Policy components with the programme, in alignment with UNICEF’s strategic plan, including updating of situation analysis to ensure that current and evidence based data on social policy issues are available to guide UNICEF’s strategic policy advocacy, intervention and development efforts on child rights and protection.
  • Bring quality input to monitoring of SDG goals by suggesting, assisting, or developing information systems related to macro-economic indicators, as well as relevant research for the UNICEF Country Offices and regional counterparts. Advise the Regional Office and Country Offices on the use of data for social and economic policy development and advocacy within the context of the CRC and follow up to WFFC/SDG/MD.
  • Establish, maintain and continuously invigorate networks and strong partnerships with relevant IFIs such as the World Bank and the Asian Development Bank, relevant regional bodies, UN agencies, academic institutions, civil society, experts and UNICEF focal points in the areas of social and economic policy.
  • In coordination with Regional Office colleagues prepare UNICEF technical papers and analyses for meetings with high-level government officials, with multilateral and bilateral agencies and civil society partners; support the Regional Office to negotiate and advocate program goals and strategies, identify strategic alliances, and influence policy development to facilitate implementation of regional and country strategies.
  • To qualify as an advocate for every child you will have…

  • Advanced university degree in Economics or Social Sciences, preferably with specialization in an international development related area.
  • At least 10 years of progressively responsible professional experience in economic and social policy research and analysis, advocacy and implementation, preferably in an international development environment.
  • Excellent track record and demonstrated results in building, leveraging, and nurturing productive partnerships with relevant IFIs, World Bank, EU, council of Europe relevant regional bodies, UN agencies, academic institutions, civil society, experts and UNICEF focal points in the areas of social and economic policy.
  • Excellent facilitation and convening skills with successful record of having operationalized key shifts in social protection systems based on sound analysis and mapping.
  • Political antenna and ability to translate economic analysis into practical implementation recommendations that consider rapidly evolving social and political contexts.
  • Work experience with middle income countries is a strong asset. Familiarity with the Europe and Central Asia region is also an asset.
  • Fluency and highly developed writing skills in English are required. Knowledge of another UN language is desired.
  • Proven excellent managerial skills are required.
  • For every Child, you demonstrate…
