The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees was established on December 14, 1950 by the United Nations General Assembly.

The agency is mandated to lead and co-ordinate international action to protect refugees and resolve refugee problems worldwide. Its primary purpose is to safeguard the rights and well-being of refugees. It strives to ensure that everyone can exercise the right to seek asylum and find safe refuge in another State, with the option to return home voluntarily, integrate locally or to resettle in a third country. It also has a mandate to help stateless people.

In more than six decades, the agency has helped tens of millions of people restart their lives. Today, a staff of some 8,600 people in more than 125 countries continues to help some 33.9 million persons.

UNHCR works to protect refugees and other displaced people across the globe. The work is diverse, highly challenging and requires committed, responsive and flexible staff with a high degree of motivation and professional skill.

Positions range from protection officers and programme or logistics experts in some of the world's most difficult trouble spots to specialist work in the agency's headquarters in Geneva.

UNHCR staff are expected to be mobile and work in different locations during their career.
