FAQ - Careers
How and where do I apply for a job with UNICEF?
UNICEF employs passionate and committed people who want to help build a world fit for children. We only accept applications for advertised positions, which will be made available on our websites:
• Malaysia vacancies
• International vacancies
As an equal opportunity employer, UNICEF is committed to diversity among its staff. Well qualified candidates, particularly females, are strongly encouraged to apply.
Does UNICEF have an internship program?
UNICEF’s international Internship Program offers eligible/qualified students the opportunity to acquire direct practical experience in UNICEF's work under the direct supervision of experienced UNICEF staff in its country offices. To be eligible for the international program, you need to be a currently-enrolled graduate or post-graduate student in a field related to UNICEF’s interests. At this time, UNICEF does not accept undergraduates. Learn more.
There are however a limited number of internship opportunities available with our office in Malaysia for both undergraduate and post-graduate students. Placement is subject to the needs of the office, and the skills and interests of the intern. Learn more.
How do I volunteer with UNICEF's field program?
UNICEF does not recruit volunteers directly for deployment to the field.
If you have an undergraduate degree, several years of work experience and are interested in long-term volunteer opportunities in developing countries, you may be eligible for entry into the United Nations Volunteer (UNV) program. This is a United Nations common program which recruits volunteers for assignments throughout the United Nations system, including UNICEF. Application procedures and information are available at the UNV Web site.
Can I volunteer with UNICEF Malaysia?
We welcome support from concerned individuals who have professional qualifications and experience in writing, photography, web-design, and public relations. We also look for support from individuals who can help us with manning UNICEF's booth and with general office administration. Learn more.
