Our People

Our People

UNICEF UK employs over 300 people. Most are based in Stratford, London, we have a small team in Edinburgh and others work remotely across the UK.

We are governed by a Board of Trustees and led by a Chief Executive, supported by an Executive Team.

Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

UNICEF UK has a longstanding commitment to diversity and inclusion, underpinning the work we do for children all around the world. Our vision is a diverse and inclusive working culture that empowers and enables all our people to deliver their best work for children.

Building on our 2020-2023 diversity and inclusion strategy, throughout 2023 we focused on six priority areas; co-creating an EDI Strategy, developing a comprehensive anti-racism action plan, developing shared and inclusive language, embedding accessibility and disability inclusion into our workplace and practice, rolling out an inclusive talent strategy, and designing inclusion into our work. Work on these priorities progressed well and we have equally ambitious plans this year including the launch of our 2024-2026 EDI strategy.
