Read our Expert's tips if you consider applying for a UN volunteer assignment

With reference to the current opportunity to apply to the UNV Programme Officer Pool, we asked our Director Talent Acquisition for some tips to potential applicants, and to explain how you tentatively can calculate your compensation as a UN Volunteer. “Many individuals who are interested in UNV positions get surprised when they understand that it is a volunteer assignment. Many also get surprised when they understand that the Volunteer Living Allowance covers the costs at the location and that the assignment is one of the best door openers to a UN career”. So before you apply, make sure to understand what you apply for.
