The first step to take part in the United Nations Volunteers Programme is to determine whether you meet the minimum requirements (see below). If this is the case, register your profile in the Global Talent Pool. Profiles from the Talent Pool are then matched with assignments offered by UN partner agencies. Approximately 2,000 assignments become available per year. Most assignments are filled through the Global Talent Pool without being advertised. Only special calls for assignments in highly specialized areas or in high demand are advertised.

Programme Details
  • Number of awards: Around 2,000 every year.
  • Duration: Not specified.

The key benefit of being a UN Volunteer is the personal satisfaction the volunteer assignment brings you as you make a positive impact on peace and development. However, UNV supports you during your assignment in several ways, e.g. through a monthly volunteer living allowance, annual leave, and medical insurance.

  • A university degree or higher technical diploma;
  • 25-years old minimum (no maximum age limit);
  • A minimum of two years of relevant work experience;
  • Good working knowledge of at least one of the three UNV working languages: English, French and Spanish.

In addition, you should be able to demonstrate:

  • A strong commitment to the values and principles of volunteerism;
  • The ability to work in a multi-cultural environment;
  • The ability to adjust to difficult living conditions;
  • Strong interpersonal and organizational skills;
  • Prior volunteering and/or working experience in a developing country is an asset.
