If you are a passionate and committed professional and want to make a lasting difference for children, the world's leading children's rights organization would like to hear from you.


UNICEF was established in 1949. UNICEF promotes the rights and wellbeing of every child, in everything we do. Together with our partners, we work in 190 countries and territories to translate that commitment into practical action, focusing special effort on reaching the most vulnerable and excluded children, to the benefit of all children, everywhere. UNICEF has some 11,600 staff in more than 145 countries.
UNICEF, and specifically the Division of Human Resources (DHR), currently holds large amounts of paper records. As a part of efficiency and effectiveness drive, DHR will digitize all of the paper based files and store them in an electronic records management system. While the NYHQ takes care of the records that relate to employment of International Professional Staff, the Country Officer will be responsible for digitizing the records of National Officer and General Service Staff.
