UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.

Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.

And we never give up.

For every child, hope

The PFP Individual Giving section based in Geneva is a lead participant in the Supporter Engagement Strategy (SES), which aims to increase the global acquisition and engagement of UNICEF’s diverse supporter base, including donors, advocates, and volunteers. A key part of the strategy is to replace the incumbent CRM systems currently in place in 21 country offices with salesforce-based technology.

How can you make a difference?

The individual contractor will identify and articulate specific CRM requirements at both HQ and market level to ensure that UNICEF fundraising operations are equipped with cutting edge, quality systems to maximize funds to improve children’s lives. After understanding and documenting requirements, the Business Analyst will support delivery by actively participating in an AGILE based development framework including design, testing, training, go live support and documentation.

The global fundraising (HQ) instance will be the first project to complete, by ensuring that global digital donors are represented in Salesforce through integration with the website / payment gateway and that UNICEF can engage with these donors in a meaningful and effective way through use of Marketing Cloud technology.

Once the HQ instance is complete the role will shift to support Salesforce / Marketing Cloud rollouts to local UNICEF markets, using the same methodology.  


  • Analyze all current fundraising business processes in the Global (HQ Instance) of Salesforce and in UNICEF country office implementations by documentation through user stories.
  • Help to manage the agile development process by story prioritization, sprint planning, backlog grooming etc.
  • Guide HQ and country offices to ensure they are at the correct stage of readiness for implementation by helping with resource planning, technology, and project process awareness.
  • Understand the technological solution (sales cloud) in terms of standard salesforce, non-profit success pack, core packages, configuration, customization, and integrations with a view to recommending product enhancements and future improvements.
  • Help HQ and offices with initial implementation / go live by providing oversight, support, and guidance on both business and technical aspects. (This will require substantial travel to various office locations globally, COVID-19 considerations withstanding.)
  • Support the making of business decisions from a fundraising and supporter experience and satisfaction viewpoints, taking cost and ROI into consideration to make recommendations to Business and Product owners where appropriate.
  • In collaboration with Business owners, provide readiness checklists and functionality prioritization for go live for offices undergoing implementation.
  • Contribute to the development and review of assets for the SES Deployment Suite, and guidance to countries as needed.


  • Author a comprehensive set of business requirements for headquarters instance, and country offices in the form of user stories.
  • Understand and categorize user requirements into global and localized core functionality.
  • Provide inputs into solution design taking global and localized requirements into account.
  • Research and recommend payment solutions in local market based on business and technical considerations and limitations.
  • Provide support to HQ and local offices before, during and after go-live.
  • Contribute to successful implementation of local solution using the supporter engagement strategy’ approach.
