COO and Co-founder of Impactpool

Are you a current Junior Professional Officer (JPO) aiming to remain at the UN? In this article, we present a smart Policy Hack that you and your supporting government could negotiate with the receiving UN organization.


This is a hack that significantly increases your chances to stay at the UN. For the UN, JPO’s are an important revenue stream and therefore you have far greater negotiation opportunities than you can imagine.

Impactpool is the world’s fastest-growing Impact career platform. In a series of articles, Henrik Ryden, a former JPO, senior staff at UNDP and co-founder of Impactpool look into Impactpool’s retention data (data on the ones that succeeded to stay at the UN) and help you to strategically position yourself to also remain after completed JPO assignment.
