The United Nations Young Professionals Programme (UN YPP) is an annual recruitment initiative aimed at attracting highly qualified young professionals who are willing to start a career in the United Nations Secretariat as international civil servants.
As of today, it is the largest hiring program of the UN System and is the only opportunity for young professionals with limited experience to get a job in the Organisation as a permanent staff member. Depending on the staffing needs of the United Nations, applicants are invited to apply for different job areas (called “job families“) with different responsibilities, locations, and requirements.
The eligibility criteria for the UN YPP 2020 are now announced. The application period preliminary scheduled for June-August 2020.
