About UNICEF: Employment

What types of contracts does UNICEF offer?

UNICEF offers various employment contracts based on the needs of the organization. Fixed-Term or regular appointment contracts are typically for a period of two years, renewable subject to the needs of the organization.  An individual on this type of contract is a UNICEF staff member. This applies to the three categories of staff: International Professional, National Officer and General Service categories. Temporary appointments are time-limited appointments issued for less than one year to meet specific short-term requirements, including in response to emergencies. Temporary Appointments can be issued in all three categories of UNICEF staff. UNICEF also hires individuals for consultancies to accomplish, within a specified period of time, a defined task for which the necessary expertise is not readily available within.
