About UNHCR

The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees was established on December 14, 1950 by the United Nations General Assembly to ensure that everybody has the right to seek asylum and find safe refuge, having fled violence, persecution, war or disaster at home.

Since 1950, UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency has been taking the lead in protecting people forced to flee wars and persecution around the world, providing life-saving aid including shelter, food and water to ensure their basic safety, rights and dignity.

With 16,803 women and men working in 134​ countries, UNHCR works tirelessly to make a difference in the lives of 70.8 million forcibly displaced people worldwide.

Our dedicated and professional staff work around the clock in roles including legal protection, community services, public affairs, health and more. Despite the challenges they can face, our staff are proud to work for UNHCR and determined to make a positive impact.

Why work for UNHCR?

The needs of people forced to flee are at the heart of everything we do. We are working together with refugees to help them restart their lives and build a better future. We are mandated to deliver the best possible outcome in an environment where staff members are empowered and can grow both professionally and personally. Joining UNHCR means living, sharing and promoting the organization’s core values relating to inclusion, diversity and gender equality.

We offer careers, not just jobs, and take pride in going the extra mile to serve our people in need. Every day, our staff use their skills to find innovative, long-lasting solutions that better support the people we serve. UNHCR offers a variety of local and international short-term and fixed-term contracts through which you can make a positive difference to refugees’ lives, whether you want to work at a field location or at our Headquarters in Geneva. 

UNHCR’s workforce consists of many diverse nationalities, cultures, languages, and opinions. We seek to sustain and strengthen this diversity and to ensure equal opportunities, as well as an inclusive working environment, for our entire workforce. Applications are encouraged from all qualified candidates without distinction on the grounds of race, colour, sex, national origin, age, religion, disability, sexual orientation, and gender identity. We work with skilled professionals who are committed to put people first, make a real difference in people’s lives and are willing to go anywhere we are needed to get the job done.

What UNHCR is looking for in a candidate:

  • Passion for humanitarian work
  • At least an undergraduate degree from a UNESCO accredited institution (international staff)
  • Successful completion of secondary education (general/field service)
  • Relevant work experience and skills
  • Proficiency in English and working knowledge of another UN language may be required
  • Ability to work in diverse teams
  • Willingness to serve in hardship locations/rotate from one duty station to another
