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. We need committed and passionate people who strongly believe in what they do and whose work ethic and motivation inspire others. We seek new talent and skills to respond to the needs of people forced to flee across the globe.  Thus, we are looking for candidates who thrive in a diverse and multi-cultural work environment and are keen to bring new innovative ideas, skills and solutions to help build a better future for people forced to flee.
