WFP seeks candidates of the highest integrity and professionalism who share our humanitarian principles.

Selection of staff is made on a competitive basis, and we are committed to promoting diversity and gender balance.

ABOUT WFP

The United Nations World Food Programme is the world's largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide.  The mission of WFP is to help the world achieve Zero Hunger in our lifetimes.  Every day, WFP works worldwide to ensure that no child goes to bed hungry and that the poorest and most vulnerable, particularly women and children, can access the nutritious food they need. 

Accountability to Affected Population (AAP) is one of the core values that helps WFP to provide the best possible service to the people it assists. To operationalise its commitments to AAP, WFP focuses on three key components: information provision, consultations, and complaints and feedback mechanisms (CFM). WFP provides means for affected people to voice complaints and provide feedback on areas relevant to operations in a safe and dignified manner.

CFM is a centralized system for receiving and managing feedback and complaints about WFP’s programmes in the field. It is designed to give beneficiaries and other community members additional avenues for accessing information about WFP’s programmes, and raising issues of concern in a safe and confidential way. WFP has been using five CFM communication channels (toll free hotline, help desk, suggestion box, CFM committee, and email) in refugee operations under Strategic Outcome one which beneficiaries use to report their complaints, inquire, and provide feedback to WFP. Currently, CFM has been extended to other programmes such as Home Grown School Feeding and Resilience programmes under Strategic Outcome two.
