The United Nations Junior Professional Officer  (UN JPO) Programme 2024

Application Deadline: 8 April 2024 –

The UN JPO Programme recruits Junior Professional Officers (formerly known as Associate Experts) for the UN Secretariat and associated entities. JPOs are recruited under bilateral agreements between the UN and donor countries. JPOs are generally nationals of donor countries, however some donors also finance nationals of developing countries. Candidates are young professionals, usually with an advanced university degree and minimum two years of professional experience. JPO positions are generally at the P2 level.

The number of sponsored positions varies from year to year and by donor country. The assignment is intended for a minimum duration of 2 years. Initially JPOs are granted a one-year appointment which is renewal for a 2nd year, with the agreement of the donor country, and on the basis of good performance. There is no expectation of being selected for a regular staff position; JPOs may apply for such positions as any other external candidate and go through the regular competitive selection process of the UN.
