VACANCY- Become a UN Paid Volunteer

UN Paid Volunteers are between 18 and 55 years old, and work with UN agencies on the front lines of political, developmental and humanitarian operations.

Who are UN Volunteers?
UN Volunteers are a separate category of UN Volunteers recently created in response to the United Nations Secretary-General’s call for greater engagement in volunteerism of history’s largest generation of people. UN Volunteers help the United Nations – one of the world’s most important intergovernmental organizations – to fulfill its mission. These volunteers are assigned to host United Nations agencies to work on the frontlines of political, developmental and humanitarian field operations. UN Volunteers are people aged 18 to 55 years who want to engage in development and peace initiatives worldwide.

What do UN Volunteers do?
As a UN Volunteer, you will help advance peace and sustainable development either in your own country or in another country around the globe. You will help people to lead healthier and safer lives and communities to be able to better address present and future challenges.

UN Volunteer positions are wide ranging; you may work in human rights, climate change adaptation, primary health care, disaster management, peace building, youth engagement or many other areas. You may work directly in a United Nations agency or be assigned to one of its partner organizations, a university or the government.

In return, you will be rewarded with an experience that will stay with you for the rest of your life. Your engagement as a UN Volunteer will be an opportunity to change the world for the better while simultaneously honing your own skills, gaining knowledge and a better understanding of the realities of international development and peace building.

How long is the assignment?
Because UN Volunteers are sponsored by United Nations agencies, their partners, governments or academic institutions, the length of assignment depends on the requesting entity’s needs. Most UN Volunteer assignments are between six and 24 months. On occasion, national and international UN Youth Volunteer assignments are less than six months and then are referred to as ‘short-term’ assignments.

When UN Volunteers are sponsored by an academic institution, they are called UN University Volunteers. UN University Volunteers undertake shorter duration assignments – generally between three and six months.


UN Volunteers receive a basic living allowance that allows the volunteer to live healthily and safely in the assigned area. If you volunteer outside of your home area, return airfare or land transport (as applicable) and some other basic costs are paid by the host agency. You will receive orientation and training before and after your assignment.

Who qualifies as a UN Volunteer?
The UN Volunteer programme is looking for motivated and talented youth between the ages of 18 and 55. (Note: you must be younger than 55 throughout the duration of your service). The educational background and experience required varies by assignment, but generally both graduates and non-graduates are eligible to apply.

    Objet: Volontaire des Nations Unies

    L’Organisation des Nations Unies est par excellence l’organisation qui, au travers de ses différents programmes, contribue au bien-être de l’humanité dans tous les domaines de la vie. Convaincu que nous pouvons tous ensemble donner au monde un avenir meilleur et ayant le vif désir d’agir avec les autres, je viens par la présente lettre solliciter un poste de volontaire au sein de cette illustre Organisation dans les domaines des Droits de l’Homme, de la Consolidation de la Paix et de l’Engagement des Jeunes.

    Je suis enseignant de formation, titulaire d’une Licence en Psychologie de l’Enfant et du Développement, j’ai une bonne connaissance des textes de la Convention des Nations unies sur les Droits de l’Enfant, de la Charte Africaine des Droits et du Bien-être de l’Enfant, des droits des réfugiés, de la Déclaration Universelles des Droits de l’Homme. Je suis membre d’Amesty International sur les réseaux siciaux et j’ai signé comme les autres membres, plusieurs pétitions entre autres concernant la situation des Rohyngyas en Birmanie et de nombreux autres cas dans d’autres pays du monde.

    Dans l’espoir que ma demande retiendra votre attention et sera retenue, veuillez agréer l’expression de mon profond respect.

  65. A highly articulate and curious aspiring Development worker with two years’ experience in two large DFID funded projects in Nigeria-PATHS2 and MNCH2.

    I hold a degree in Banking and Finance from Micheal Okpara University Agriculture, Umudike,Abia State

    Currently working as a finance and administrative intern with MNCH2 Kaduna, I am responsible for preparing payment vouchers, uploading of payments to online banking system, preparing cashbooks, and tracking of staff timesheets, cash disbursements to participants during technical workshops like (community distribution on misoprostol,Outreach activities etc)and procurement in line with donor requirements while ensuring value for money. In this role, I successfully scanned and electronically filed January to December 2016 payment vouches which had been a backlog prior to my resuming at MNCH2 and this helped smoothen the DFID audit process of MNCH2 Kaduna.

    In PATHS2, I was a volunteer administrative assistant to the Operations research advisor ensuring adequate office supplies always. I was also a research assistant where I administered key informant interviews to pre-identified respondents for the roll out of the Community Based Health Insurance Scheme in Enugu State.

    I look forward to working as a Volunter in your Organisation to further expand on the skills I have previously acquired while also contributing to an organisation that makes real impact in the world.

    Yours faithfully,

    Chizaram Adindu
