UNICEF jobs are constantly being announced, so you should keep an eye and literally do a “job hunting process” if you want to join the agency. The applications process is explained in UNICEF’s website and is very similar to Inspira (UN Careers). You should create your online profile, and transpose each line of your Curriculum Vitae to the system.

 Bad news is that you can’t import your profile from Inspira since UNICEF and Inspira don’t communicate. So prepare yourself to lose at least one working day to fill manually all those fields. Good news is that, once you create your profile, applying for a new job position doesn’t take so much time. Of course you will need to provide a new cover letter for each UNICEF job you’re applying to, but this step does not take so much time and effort.

Working at UNICEF will put you in contact with other professionals from different cultures and beliefs towards the ultimate goal of supporting children development all around the globe. As stated so many times by U.N., we are the first generation that can eradicate extreme poverty and make this world a wonderful place to live for all humankind.
