UNHCR supports women's right to decent work

To mark International Women's Day this year, UNHCR asked women across the world 'why is work important to them?'.

The UNHCR is proud of its diverse workforce and encourages women to apply for its wide and varied positions across the world.

Employees of the UNHCR operate in some 125 countries around the world, from major capitals to remote, difficult locations where field staff are directly helping the most vulnerable victims of displacement. Attaining a diverse workforce forms part of a wider aim to build UNHCR’s talent and strengthen their capacity to answer the urgent needs of those of concern to the organization.

Whether you're an experienced professional or a recent graduate, UNHCR provides opportunities to take your career to the next level while building a better future for refugees.

Start considering a career that will truly make a difference.
