UNESCO has launched its 2018 Call for Applications to the Young Professionals Programme.
The programme seeks to improve the geographical representation of staff at the UNESCO Secretariat, promote gender parity at international professional level, create an enhanced pool of young civil servants, enriching and diversifying UNESCO.
The selected candidates will be appointed as UNESCO staff members on a regular fixed-term contract at P1/P2 level. Assignments may be either at the UNESCO Headquarters or in a UNESCO Field Office. The renewal of contracts of appointed applicants will depend on the evaluation of performance during the first nine (9) months probationary period.
During the first twelve (12) months of service, the Young Professionals will have the opportunity to work with a mentor who will support them at the beginning of their assignment. Furthermore, Young Professionals will be given the opportunity to attend trainings on UNESCO’s results based management and other relevant areas.
