The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) is the UN organization that promotes volunteerism to support peace and development worldwide. Volunteerism can transform the pace and nature of development, and it benefits both society at large and the individual volunteer. UNV contributes to peace and development by advocating for volunteerism globally, encouraging partners to integrate volunteerism into development programming, and mobilizing volunteers.
UNV PROGRAMME OFFICERS (UNV POs)
UNV Programme Officers (UNV POs) are the country level representatives of the organization in ensuring and delivering key results of the UNV Strategic Framework. UNV has approximately 70 UNV Programme Officers in the field. They normally report to the UNDP Deputy Resident Representative (Programme) at country level, while working in close collaboration with a Portfolio Manager at UNV headquarters in Bonn, Germany.
KEY STRATEGIC FUNCTIONS
HOW TO APPLY
Please be advised that you need to register your profile in the UNV database before you apply.
UNV is currently building up a Talent Pool, which includes qualified, pre-assessed and evaluated candidates earmarked to become the next generation of UNV Programme Officers.
Already registered candidates are able to apply by using the application code indicated in this general Description of Assignment (DOA). Non-registered candidates have to use the application code available in the DOA after registering their profile in the UNV database. The current call goes from February 16th until March 19th 2017.
The selection process may include the following steps: telephone screening/video interviewing, technical assessments and competency based interviews. Since this process will be for a group of candidates, and not be limited to one assignment, we do expect the entire process to take up to three months.
Eligibility criteria for UN Volunteers and UNV Programme Officers who are currently serving will be communicated separately to all UNV Field Units.
