If you are a committed, creative professional and are passionate about making a lasting difference for children, the world's leading children's rights organization would like to hear from you. Over 76 years, UNICEF has been working on the ground in 190 countries and territories to promote children's survival, protection and development. UNICEF supports child health and nutrition, good water and sanitation, quality basic education for all boys and girls, and the protection of children from violence, exploitation, and abuse. UNICEF is funded entirely by the voluntary contributions of individuals, businesses, foundations, and governments.


Purpose of Activity/ Assignment:

The digital engagement plays a crucial role in UNICEF's response to global shifts in the fields of communication, fundraising, advocacy and development. Effective use of a variety of digital channels to communicate UNICEF’s key messages through relevant content, interactive experiences and dialogue, allow individuals to connect with our work directly, thus creating valuable relationships with both online and offline supporters.


UNICEF in Belarus is present in most of the social media platforms. As youth and children are one of the primary target audiences for UNICEF, the office established the TikTok account in 2021 to galvanize young people’s support and participation as well as reach new and younger audiences, inspiring them to support UNICEF’s work and cause for children and be advocates of positive behaviours and practices. TikTok has national and international audience, and UNICEF around the world have found TikTok as an engaging platform for youth. Being the sixth largest social network, TikTok has more than 1.65 billion downloads to date.

To drive awareness and advocacy around the youth and involve the youth in content creation, UNICEF is promoting communications approach which relies on providing opportunities for young people to show their perspective on issues and programmes that affect them. To plan and implement this approach, we require youth expertise of a social media (TikTok account management) which in turn will ensure youth participation in developing UNICEF’s programmes for young people.
