Since its establishment in 1945, the United Nations has grown into a body of 193 member states. With so many to serve, its operation is understandably vast.
The U.N. is, according to its human resource department, made up of 44,000 employees, 60 percent of whom are stationed in field offices around the globe.
The U.N. tends to advertise more than 200 openings at any time, in areas ranging from administration and finance to human rights, logistics and social affairs. Job notices are advertised on the the U.N. jobs board, respective websites of U.N. programs and agencies and Devex Jobs.
The list below provides a rundown of jobs in U.N. specialized agencies and related organizations. Specialized agencies differ from U.N. programs in the way these organizations are funded. Whereas programs depend mainly on voluntary contributions, specialized agencies receive both donations and a portion of the overall U.N. budget.
