Job Opening: Senior Protection Outreach Assistant

The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is a humanitarian and non-political organization mandated by the United Nations to protect refugees, asylum-seekers and stateless persons and help them find lasting solutions to their problems. UNHCR’s activities are based on a framework of international refugee law and standards that includes the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees and its 1967 Protocol, as well as an array of international and regional treaties on human rights and humanitarian law. UNHCR works with States, civil society organizations, the legal community, the media and other actors to ensure the protection of refugees and promote their participation and integration in the economic, social, cultural and political life of their host society.

UNHCR is looking to hire a highly motivated individual to assist its Country Office in Cyprus in carrying out a wide range of community development activities by acting as a critical interface between UNHCR and populations of concern and the government, NGO partners and other stakeholders, and is inviting qualifying candidates to apply.
