    Why Work for UNHCR?

    UNHCR employs some 9,000 staff from all over the world, mostly working in field locations where refugees and internally displaced people need our help most. They have a wide range of skills. Our staff provides live-saving aid and protection every day for millions of uprooted and stateless people around the world.

    This is something that our staff takes great pride of, despite the many hardships they face while working in deep field operations, at times close to or within conflict areas.

    Our greatest reward is to know that our work has a major positive impact and brings hope to people uprooted by conflict and persecution. Join the organization and help make a difference at a time when more people than ever need our help.

    UNHCR offers opportunities in a wide range of functional areas where you can achieve your professional goal to be a humanitarian.
