About UNA-UK

The United Nations Association – UK (UNA-UK) is the UK’s leading source of independent analysis on the UN and a grassroots membership organisation with a network of supporters and local groups across the UK. Our vision is of a safer, fairer and more sustainable world, which we pursue through the promotion of an effective United Nations. We work towards this goal by:

  • explaining why the UN matters to key audiences in the UK and beyond
  • influencing decision-makers and opinion-shapers in support of UN ideals
  • generating a critical mass of public support for, and engagement with, the UN
  • working with educators and young people to foster a new generation of UN advocates
  • stimulating ideas and action on how the UN can operate more effectively and sustainably

The organisation is at an exciting stage as we embark on two campaigns – on UK foreign policy and on restoring faith in global governance – and look to streamline and focus our activities. The Communications Assistant will play a key role in moving forward these developments by providing high-quality media and online support across UNA-UK’s operations and activities.
