Diversity of Our People

The diversity of our people, some 36,000 from our 193 Member States, means that you will find yourself working in multi-cultural teams with people from all backgrounds and cultures who have wide perspectives, experiences, expectations as well as approaches.

Serious About Career Support

From the moment you join the United Nations’ dynamic team of staff members, you can be certain of one thing - our support system will ensure that you are not left alone to figure out your career. The development of every staff member is very important to us – helping you to grow helps us to become better at what we do. We are therefore committed to providing all the available tools to respond to your needs.

We are serious about career support at the United Nations and our approach is firmly rooted in a solid and interactive partnership between the staff member, the manager and the Organization. Although you are primarily responsible for your professional and personal development, and are the key driver in your career planning process, managers are always there to provide you with the necessary direction, information as well as a work environment to positively and qualitatively support your career development
