Under the supervision of the Fundraising Officer for Individual Giving [IG], this post will primarily be responsible for strategic planning and the day-to-day supervision of the Telemarketing (TM) fundraising channel for donor acquisition, donor retention and customer service through third-party outbound telemarketing agency/ies and through the UNICEF in-house donor care team.
