A world of development experience

At the United Nations Millennium Summit, world leaders committed to halving global poverty by 2015. The United Nations Development Programme is responsible for helping them to achieve that and we need your help to do it.

As the United Nations’ global development network, the UNDP is at the forefront of the current development dialogue in its defence of poor and disadvantaged populations. Our primary aim is to provide developing countries with consultancy services which are based on knowledge as well as on the formation of national, regional and global coalitions for change. With its many years of experience in the fields of inclusion and consensus-building, the UNDP has earned the trust and cooperation of leaders throughout the developing world.

We are currently recruiting a new generation of experts who wish to contribute to these partnerships by offering strategic approaches to long-standing problems. We are looking for people, from different cultures and levels of society, who can give us advice and bring us new ideas.

We have a wide range of international opportunities at various levels and offer competitive salaries according to experience.
