About UNICEF: Employment

What does UNICEF look for in potential staff?

International Professional (IP) staff is recruited internationally and serve in all duty station globally. They hold leadership, managerial or specialist functions which require a level of technical expertise. Senior staff or Director level positions are also part of this category.  General Service (GS) staff is locally recruited and provide administrative and support services across all areas of the Organization.  National Officer (NO) staff is nationals of the country in which they perform functions of a technical and professional nature. National Officers are recruited locally, and you will not find National Officer vacancies on the main employment website, rather you will need to directly contact the local office. A list of UNICEF offices globally is available here.
