UNHCR works to protect refugees and other displaced people across the globe. The work is diverse, highly challenging and requires committed, responsive and flexible staff with a high degree of motivation and professional skill. Positions range from protection officers and programme or logistics experts in some of the world's most difficult trouble spots to specialist work in the agency's headquarters in Geneva. UNHCR staff are expected to be mobile and work in different locations during their career.
Under UNHCR's human resources policy, internal candidates are usually given first priority for selected posts.
Recruitment for entry level international professional positions is through our International Professional Roster (IPR). The application procedure and next exam date will be announced at a later stage.
