We are a group of passionate and committed people
With the determination to deliver long-lasting impact for every child in Australia and around the world. 100 per cent donor funded, we stand for amplifying the voices of young people, protecting every child and improving the lives of the next generation, no matter what.
We cannot do this without the commitment of our team, who all contribute each day to our shared purpose. We are continuing to build a truly inclusive workplace, one that our team thrive in and feel they can bring their best self to work. This is constantly evolving as we continue to learn what makes a difference in the lives of our team.

What we value
Every day we are surrounded by what we value, in the way we work, how we make decisions and in our interactions with each other, our partners, stakeholders, children and young people.
Being surrounded by people who have similar values, we believe, has a profound effect on our experience at work, who we are and ultimately the impact we have in Australia and around the world.
Learn more about what we value below.
We remember why we are here by always putting children and young people at the forefront of everything we do.
We are accountable for our impact and actions, and we hold ourselves accountable for achieving our goals and delivering on our promises.
We do the right thing, even when no one is watching. We behave honestly, ethically and to the highest standards, as we believe children deserve nothing less.
We thrive on initiative and new ideas, we identify opportunities to experiment and we look to scale new approaches that work, so that we can achieve even greater results for children.
We work together for children by encouraging different perspectives and ideas, and we harness the skills across the organisation to work effectively and productively together.
We deliver on our promise to do our best work, we depend on and trust one another. We believe in lifting one another up, supporting each other, and caring about the individual.
Be involved in meaningful work while collaborating with people like Jono and Zunilka.
Meet Zunilka, our New Product & Innovation Lead
“Throughout my 20-year professional career, I have never experienced trust, kindness, and support in the way that UNICEF Australia provides. As a working parent with two young children, I have been afforded countless opportunities that have helped me thrive, allowing me to show up as my best self for our superstar teams. Whether it's putting trust in me to launch a new innovative project, support for further education and upskilling, or flexibility to spend quality time with my family, I love that UNICEF Australia has my back every step of the way.”
Meet Jono, our Head of Performance, Growth & Insight
“I have never felt more empowered, supported, and driven in my career until my role as Head of Performance, Growth and Insights. It’s a pleasure to come to work each day and collaborate with a super talented team on projects that will define our performance for years to come. More importantly it’s a privilege to sign off each day with the knowledge that you and your colleagues have helped to make an impact for some of the world’s most vulnerable children.”
