The United Nations is committed to diversity and inclusion within its workforce and encourages all candidates to apply to become a part of the Organization.  The United Nations does not tolerate sexual exploitation and abuse, any kind of harassment, including sexual harassment, and discrimination.

All applications will be treated with the strictest confidence and short-listed candidates will undergo a rigorous assessment process, reference, and background checks, including human rights and conflicts of interest screening.

English and French are the working languages of the United Nations. Fluency in oral and written English is required for all senior leadership positions.  A working knowledge of another United Nations official language will be an advantage.
