What we look for
Does making a difference motivate you? Are you selfless and driven to be a part of a bigger purpose in the service of humanity? And, are hope and strength of character attributes which will guide your zeal to make a difference in a complex world?
Are you the type of person who will travel and work anywhere at a moment’s notice?
Do you thrive in an environment that is truly international and multi-cultural, which respects as well as promotes diversity and functions at its best through the efforts of teams of different people?
These are some of the characteristics that you will find in our staff.
We want people with integrity. People who are fair, impartial, honest and truthful. We want dynamic and adaptable persons who are not afraid to think creatively, to be proactive, flexible and responsive.
If you think you embody these values then this is the place for you and your career.
Acting with integrity is performing in a selfless, impartial and honest manner at all times. When you work at the United Nations this means living the values of the Organization in your daily activities and behavior. Integrity upholds the professionalism of the staff; it is the backbone of efficiency.
To work with professionalism is to be dedicated, conscientious and efficient in meeting deadlines and achieving results. It means demonstrating competence in your area of expertise, and in any situation, presenting the best possible appearance, commitment and pride in your work.
Respect for diversity
Diversity is one of the defining features of the United Nations and the Organization recognizes that the diversity of its staff is an asset in tackling its complex tasks. We are called to respect and learn from each other’s differences and rely on them to find more creative ways to solve everyday challenges.
