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.

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?

Because of the nature of our work and structure of our Malaysia country program, there is little field volunteering opportunities available at UNICEF. There are however several local non-governmental and community-based organisations that we work with in the country who would welcome your involvement and support. Learn more.
