The Private Sector Fundraising Unit in the UK is part of UNHCR Global Private Sector Partnerships Section, with a commitment to inspire awareness and approach the local community to feel part of UNHCR’s mission and attract a large number of individual donations and persons committed to long-term monthly contributions. In order to support this, UNHCR UK is calling for proposals from qualified digital agencies to provide digital acquisition services with a specific focus on paid search, display, social media advertising, retargeting, as well as web development services to create landing page, microsites, email templates and other digital products. We are also looking for an agency to provide support on landing pages optimization and subsequent communication support for digitally acquired donors and lead generation. Creative services are also required.
In more than five decades, UNHCR has helped tens of millions of people restart their lives. Today, a staff of some 8,600 people in more than 125 countries continue to help more than 33.9 million globally displaced persons. To help and protect some of the world’s most vulnerable people in so many places and types of environments, UNHCR must purchase goods and services worldwide.
