Are you Swiss, under 29 years old and hold a Master’s degree? Would you like to gain valuable field experience with a UN organisation while contributing to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)?
Each year, the Swiss Government finances up to 30 United Nations Youth Volunteer (UNYVUN Youth Volunteers ) positions. UNYV assignments, which last one year, are a unique opportunity to learn, discover the multilateral system and kick-start your career in the area of international cooperation. This programme is reserved for Swiss nationals only, therefore the number of applicants is relatively low.
To ensure one can fully immerse in these assignments, all travel, relocation, life and health insurance costs are covered by the programme and a monthly living allowance is paid.
