UNICEF USA Jobs and Careers

The UNICEF USA seeks talented individuals from all backgrounds to join our fight for child survival.


Our staff is a diverse group of highly capable and committed individuals who bring a wide range of professional experiences, both nonprofit and for-profit, to bear on our mission.

We are an equal opportunity organization and our core values—Trust, Respect, Accountability, Innovation, Teamwork and Service—guide us in how we carry out this mission each day.

Diversity and Inclusion Statement

UNICEF USA embraces the attributes, characteristics, and perspectives that make each person unique. We respect all differences, visible and invisible, and challenge prejudice and bias that consciously or unconsciously target people from all walks of life. Just as we are dedicated to the principles of diversity and inclusion, we expect our staff, partners, volunteers and supporters to commit to these same values.

At UNICEF USA, we believe that the benefits of diversity and highly engaged employees can propel an organization to dream, communicate, build, and create in ways thought to be unimaginable. We value and incorporate the diverse experiences, perspectives, ideas, and backgrounds of our employees to build a solid foundation that enables us to achieve our mission of Children First.
