It is essential to keep in mind that registration in the UNV Global Talent Pool does not guarantee a volunteer assignment. The selection process for volunteer assignments is highly competitive. Our United Nations System partners creating requests for volunteers based on specific needs and requirements. These volunteer assignments receive enormous interest, and it is simply not possible for all qualified and experienced candidates registered in our talent pool to become UN Volunteers. Here are some points to consider: To avoid the disappointment of applying and not getting contacted, always carefully read the Description of Assignment (DoA) before you apply to determine if you are fully eligible and if your profile fully matches the assignment requirements. Keep your UNV profile always updated and complete. It's important to note that UNV assignments are volunteer assignments, not employment.
