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 a champion,
UNICEF engagement with the private sector is evolving and UNICEF is actively seeking to engage with the private sector to accelerate and secure the achievement of the SDGs. This is in line with UNICEF’s strategic direction, more specifically the Business for Results (B4R) initiative. Whilst UNICEF has developed strong expertise to engage with the public and social sectors, support is needed to apprehend the world of the private sector, its stakeholders and dynamics, and identify potential modalities to engage with it.
How can you make a difference?
Under the guidance of the Deputy Representative, the consultant will support the private sector mapping exercise. This entails:
- Carrying out a mapping of potential private sector partners, including thematic interests, risks, opportunities and trends which align to UNICEF Guinea’s country programme priorities.
- Conducting a high-level overview of the current state of the economy in Guinea – the most important sectors, leading companies, employment and geographical presence – with an impact on children and on UNICEF’s work.
- Reviewing the regulatory framework, and policies and reporting obligations, related to CSR.
- Assessing the level and nature of the impact of the business sector on children ́s rights in Guinea and identifying sectors and companies that have the potential to develop CSR activities benefiting children.
