The issues on our agenda are manifold and diverse as are the careers we offer. Among our ranks you will find staff members who monitor elections, disarm child soldiers, coordinate relief in humanitarian crises and provide administrative, as well as logistical support to carry out our complex mandates. These are just a few examples amongst our many other equally critical and necessary functions. The wide array of jobs means that as a staff member you may change functions, departments, geographical locations, and even organizations or fields of work throughout your career in the Organization.
The diversity of our people, almost 44,000 staff 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.
