Short-Term opportunities

 From time to time, UNESCO needs extra services, provided by persons other than its own permanent staff, in order to assist the Secretariat, Member States or its external partners for short periods. These extra services enable the Organization to deal with short-term work overload or core activities when it is not possible to create an established post, and to bring in ad-hoc outside expertise which is not readily available within the Secretariat.


If you are looking for a short term opportunity in support functions such as office assistance, secretarial, building services at Headquarters (Paris), you may wish to register your CV on UNESCO Experts/Support Services Roster under  “Short term support services at Headquarters”.

Please note that only French residents may be considered for a short term assignment in a support function at Headquarters.
