This call closed on 9 June 2019. In March and April 2019, Southern Africa was hit by two subsequent cyclones that left a trail of damage and destruction in their path. In Zimbabwe, the floods burst rivers, and mudslides resulted in the loss of lives and livelihoods, severely damaging road networks, water points, bridges, irrigation schemes and electricity infrastructure. UNV is currently working to urgently recruit national and international UN Volunteers to support recovery initiatives by UNDP in Zimbabwe.

Areas of focus

Requirements

A minimum of two years of professional experience (for national UN Volunteer assignments) and at least five years of professional experience (for international UN Volunteer assignments) in the above-mentioned areas of expertise.
