What is a UNICEF Talent Group

The term ‘Talent Group’ is widely used and refers to different things in different UN organizations. A UNICEF Talent Group is a list of pre-vetted, highly qualified professionals intended for fast-track recruitment processes as positions become available.

Please note: Placement in a Talent Group does not guarantee a position.

For you as an applicant this means that you must stay informed when organizations like UNICEF launch a new Talent Group and the best way to stay informed is to create a profile at Impactpool and get our newsletter and job alerts. The importance of staying informed is also associated with the fact that efficiently managed rosters always lower the number of individual job announcements.
