UNESCO-UNEVOC does not offer positions outside of the Centre in Bonn.

BEWARE OF JOB SCAMS! We have been notified in the past of forged vacancy announcements. In some cases, would-be applicants have been asked for advance payments. Note that UNESCO does not charge a fee at any stage of the recruitment process. These schemes are fraudulent and have nothing to do with the United Nations. Please note that UNESCO-UNEVOC will always publish openings on this page only. If job openings are not announced here or on the UNESCO pages at they are counterfeits. There is no UNEVOC office in New York, and UNEVOC has no staff member named Nick Harman or Sharon A Chandler. The only domain we use for any communication is More about UN Job scams.


There are currently no vacancies at UNESCO-UNEVOC.
