This will be determined based on the preferred candidate's location andÂ availabilityÂ to relocate.

UNICEF works to provide uninterrupted education for every child affected by humanitarian crisis â especially girls, children with disabilities, internally displaced children, refugees and migrants.
We help children develop skills to cope with the trauma of crisis, and supply them with learning spaces that are safe, child-friendly and equipped with water and sanitation facilities. Our work builds capacity by training teachers, supplying learning materials and supporting Governments to reduce the risk of disaster. Through all we do, UNICEF strongly advocates for a childâs right to education and a protective learning environment, forging partnerships at the national and global levels to safeguard learning for every child. We also support Governments to strengthen their emergency responses in education through system strengthening.
