As the UN’s global development network, UNDP is at the forefront of today’s development dialogue in championing the poor and disadvantaged. Our focus is on providing developing countries with knowledge-based consulting services and building national, regional and global coalitions for change. With a strong history of inclusion and consensus-building, UNDP has earned the trust and partnership of leaders across the developing world.
We seek to hire a new generation of expert practitioners who want to contribute to those partnerships by offering strategic approaches to long-standing problems. We look for individuals who can communicate advice and new ideas across cultures and all strata of society.
Employees are remunerated based on the standard set of United Nations entitlements and benefits for the respective categories in the UN common system. More information can be found here.
The United Nations shall place no restrictions on the eligibility of men and women to participate in any capacity and under conditions of equality in its principal and subsidiary organs (Charter of the United Nations – Chapter III, article 8). Women are encouraged to apply.
The United Nations Development Programme Office is a non-smoking environment.
Please be aware that only applications for announced vacancies will be accepted. Please DO NOT submit your resume for non-advertised positions.
Beware of fraudulent job offers
UNDP is aware of fictitious employment offers being circulated via email or originating from online job boards. Many of these schemes consist of an alleged offer of employment or contract with UNDP in return for the payment of fees or providing personal or banking information.
Please note that UNDP does not charge a fee at any stage of the recruitment process (application, interview, meeting, traveling, processing, training or any other fees).
Such fraudulent correspondence may appear legitimate: they may feature a UN/UNDP logo, they may appear to originate from an official-looking email address or web site or they may be sent by individuals purporting to represent UNDP or an entity which includes the word UN in its name. These fraudulent schemes mislead individuals with the purpose to extract money and/or personal information.
UNDP advertises its employment and procurement opportunities on its global websites (http://jobs.undp.org; http://procurement-notices.undp.org) or on the websites of its UN Country Teams (a list of which can be consulted here). UNDP also utilizes bona fide and established media and newspapers to disseminate its vacancies.
Beware if an offer of employment looks too good to be true. Never divulge personal and banking information or send money if you are unsure of the authenticity of an email or other communication in the name of UNDP. If you are in doubt, please contact us for confirmation.
If you did mistakenly provide your information to a suspected fraudster, please report it to local law enforcement authorities or, if one of the two parties is based in the United States, to the Internet Crime Complaint Center for appropriate action.
