As we swap out old for new, pages will be in transition. Thanks for your patience – please keep coming back to see the improvements.

About UNICEF: Employment


For every child, apply.

All UNICEF vacancies worldwide are advertised here. Vacancies for Senior Staff positions such as Representatives and Directors (post levels P-5, D-1 and D-2) are also advertised in the Senior Staff Vacancies section.

While most National Officer and General Service positions are also advertised through the e-Recruitment system here, select offices occasionally also advertise on website of the local UNICEF Country Office (a listing of all Offices is available here).

How to apply to regular vacancies in e-Recruitment

Candidate Experience Training 

Click on the appropriate link on the left navigation menu to log in to an existing e-Recruitment profile or to create a new profile in e-Recruitment. Current UNICEF staff members should log in using their staff profiles through the appropriate link or navigate to the relevant section of the UNICEF Intranet.

Please note that it is highly recommended that you use Microsoft Internet Explorer rather than different web browser (Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Chrome, Safari - Mac computer) because you will not be able to get the optimized version of the e-Recruitment system. We also recommend that you disable the pop-up blockers from your internet browser to enable additional windows such as the application wizard to open.

When completing your application form, provide sufficient information to enable us to evaluate your eligibility and suitability for the specific position. Make sure you update your resume and attach a cover letter outlining your motivation for the specific position. Please use English as an application language for International Professional positions and make sure you keep your email and phone number updated throughout the application process.
Online applications will be acknowledged using the e-mail address you provided. If you do not receive an e-mail acknowledgement within 24 hours of submitting an application, your application may not have been received. To check the status of your application, please login to the system and click on “Employment Opportunities” and then “My Applications.”

We will contact candidates who are seriously being considered for a post for an interview. All candidates will be notified of the outcome of their applications.
