Our shared commitment

Our shared commitment

Our Shared Commitment was developed by and for our people, and sets out how we work together and the culture we want to create.

At UNICEF UK we believe in a happy workplace, and in the power of fulfilled colleagues who enjoy their work. Our Shared Commitment is a set of values, developed by and for our people, that sets out how we work together and the culture we want to create.

We’re looking for people who share our values, and our passion for making a difference for children all around the world.

We promote equity, diversity and inclusion in our workplace. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you’re from. If you share our values and are ambitious, talented, and motivated to make a difference for children you’ve come to the right place.
