UNICEF Australia’s purpose is to promote and protect the rights of every child. Currently, we employ around 50 Sydney-based staff across a broad range of roles to fulfill this purpose.

We are passionate about our work and committed to our shared values, and we work hard together in the pursuit of our goals, putting collaboration and teamwork first.  

Our values are:

  • Respect for the rights of all children and the tenets of the Convention on the Rights of the Child 
  • Respect and care for our donors and supporters
  • Respect for others
  • Putting teamwork and collaboration first 
  • Being open and honest in all our communication
  • Making UNICEF’s vision a reality
Our vision is to promote and realise the rights of all children to survive and thrive, especially the most disadvantaged and excluded.
