Working with 2,000 businesses worldwide, the Corporation uses over six decades of experience to create opportunities where they are needed most. Private sector financial development is essential to the promotion of successful and sustainable economies in low- and middle-income countries around the world. Sound and efficient financial markets can ensure that resources are allocated where they are most productive, assisting job creation and spurring economic growth. IFC has embarked on an ambitious new growth strategy, the outcome of which will be to double our volume of business by 2030 and triple the work we do in Low Income Countries (LICs) and Fragile and Conflict affected States (FCS).

Deputy Director, Data & Analytics - D1

United States of America, New York, New York - UNICEF

  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 is mandated by the United Nations General Assembly to advocate for the protection of children's rights, to help meet their basic needs and to expand their opportunities to reach their full potential. Delivering and sustaining results for children requires action by both governments and the public at large. By setting priorities and concentrating greater effort and investment on children who face the greatest challenges, governments and development partners can make sure every child has a fair chance to survive and achieve their full potential ? and realize a future of their own making. To the degree that any child has an unequal chance in life ? in its social, political, economic, civic and cultural dimensions ? his or her rights are violated. The broader global community increasingly shares this perspective, as reflected in attention to inequality in the Sustainable Development Goals and other elements of Agenda 2030. The collection, analysis, dissemination and use of good quality, disaggregated data is the foundation of effective action. For decades, UNICEF has played a crucial role in the collection, analysis, dissemination and use of data about children. UNICEF supports governments to more effectively use data to inform investment decisions, policies and programmes, as well as to strengthen national data collection and analysis systems. UNICEF plays a key role in developing, testing and disseminating new data-related tools and methodologies. UNICEF's own databases and data analyses inform policy dialogue, advocacy and campaigning at country, regional and global levels. UNICEF is widely recognized as the global custodian of data for children and is responsible for official reporting of many global SDG indicators.     How can you make a difference? As lead of Data & Analytics Section, the incumbent will be a senior leader focused on issues of statistics.

Under the supervision of the Director and guidance of Chief Data Officer, the post holder will mobilize resources and find other partners to drive coherence and excellence of UNICEF's support for collation, adjustment, modelling (as necessary), storage and dissemination and communication of internationally-comparable and high-quality statistics and other data on the situation of children, including through the use of Frontier Data and associated techniques; On the other hand, the team will continue to push the boundaries of what can be measured through innovative techniques applied to all available data sources to find data good enough for decision-making and advocacy. The third strand of work is support to, and building capacity in, country National Statistical Systems as well as UNICEF country offices to collect, analyse and use data on the situation of children. This function will be carried out in collaboration with internal partners (particularly Programme Group, EMOPS, and Regional / Country Offices), and in partnership with UN, national governments, foundations, academic institutions, and other organizations with expertise in this area.   Job organizational context  Data & Analytics (D&A) team is located within the Division of Data, Analytics, Planning and Monitoring at UNICEF's New York headquarters and is led by Associate Director with guidance from Chief Data Officer.

D&A provides leadership, strategic and normative guidance and technical support to UNICEF's work on generating evidence on the situation of children by supporting the collection, analysis, understanding and use of robust data and statistics, programme data, data science, big data analytics and data literacy.
