A day at the office can mean many things to a UNICEF staff member. It could mean talking with a 14-year-old girl about her favourite subjects at school after she stopped her own child marriage or supporting medical students to learn more about Special Newborn Care Units.
It's not all drama, of course.
Much of UNICEF's work is invisible: securing funding for immunization programmes, for example, or chipping away at gender norms, or providing technical advice to partners on how to reach more children.
There's also the vital task of building alliances with local communities, helping them to ensure the education, protection and well-being of every girl and every boy.
We employ people from a variety of backgrounds, so if you are interested in working with us please carefully read the requirements of advertised roles in our vacancies section.

Volunteers and interns
The India Country Office does not normally have the capacity to accept volunteers, but there are, on occasion, opportunities for you to offer your services on a voluntary, unpaid basis. These opportunities will be advertised and also promoted on social media.
The UNICEF global intern programme is managed through our headquarters in New York and there are specific criteria for applying for an internship. For more information please go to the intern page on our global website.
We sometimes have opportunities for interns locally in India and these are advertised online.
