As is the case with most United Nations agencies, landing a job at UNICEF is highly competitive, and a single vacancy can receive hundreds of applications. Technical expertise and a clear résumé are key to standing out, Anne Favreau, chief of the agency’s human resources partner team, told Devex.
Before applying, candidates should also make sure they understand the agency’s needs. “If a job is posted with very specific requirements, that means we need these requirements,” Favreau said. She discouraged “serial applicants” and advised any job seeker to apply where their experience is a strong fit and to make this clear in their application.
