Jobs at UNESCO- Professional Career Vacancies- UN

A professional career at UNESCO

An international professional career at UNESCO may be open to you depending on your level of expertise in the field of education, culture, science or communication or in management and administration.

You will be providing expert opinion on global issues and handling the planning and execution of UNESCO’s programmes and projects, at the centre of the Organization’s intergovernmental activity.

Your responsibilities will be exclusively international and, accordingly, you will be under the authority of the Director-General and may not receive instructions from any government or from any other authority outside of the Organization.

It is your skills which will qualify you for a vacant post. Given equally qualified applicants, the degree of representation of your country may be a determining factor since staff at UNESCO are recruited on as wide a geographical basis as possible.


Like the other United Nations agencies, UNESCO offers to its international professional staff the following career steps:

Junior professionals (grade P-1/P-2)
Your principal goal will be to demonstrate your expertise by participating in the execution of programmes and projects, moving in the course of your apprenticeship to higher levels of responsibility.

Middle-ranking professionals (grade P-3/P-4)
As a project leader in charge of a small team, you will launch and develop particular facets of the UNESCO programme and gain further professional experience.

Management professionals (grade P-5 and D)
Your responsibilities as head of a section, director of a division or director of a UNESCO field office will include direct participation in the preparation and execution of the Organization’s strategy. You will manage a budget and assume a leadership role.

When thinking about a professional international career at UNESCO, check first to see if your skills and qualifications match the job profile and read up on UNESCO’s activities by visiting the website.

National professionals reinforce the skills and competencies available in the UNESCO Field Offices.

Languages: an excellent knowledge of either French or English (the two working languages) and a good knowledge of the other language. A knowledge of Arabic, Chinese, Spanish or Russian is an additional asset.
Note: for applicants from unrepresented or under-represented countries, knowledge of a single UNESCO working language is acceptable. However, once appointed, the staff member must learn the second working language.

Attitude: awareness of the multiple facets of a multicultural world and a commitment to international public service are essential.

Experience: as a rule, two to three years’ experience for junior professionals (grade P-1/P-2); four to eight years’ experience for middle-ranking professionals (grade P-3/P-4); ten to 15 years’ experience, including management experience, for management professionals (grade P-5, D and ADG).

The committee assesses the professional qualifications of the candidates, bearing in mind at all times the requirements of the vacant post, by examining their academic qualifications, their professional and international experience and also their language skills and other relevant knowledge and abilities.

4. Final evaluation
Among the shortlisted candidates, those who are particularly suited for the vacant post will be invited for an interview. UNESCO will check the references relating to your previous professional experience.
With a view to recruiting staff on as wide a geographical basis as possible, from among equally qualified applicants, priority will be given to those from unrepresented or under-represented countries.

5. Appointment decision
