Beware of fraudulent job offers

Please note that UNICEF does not charge a fee at any stage of the recruitment process (application, interview, meeting, travelling, processing, training, or any other fees)

UNICEF only advertises its employment opportunities on its global employment website or on the website of its Country Offices/National Committees (a list of which can be consulted here).
