The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme has recently launched a call for diverse Haitian professionals to serve as UN Volunteers and contribute to the UN's humanitarian response to the recent earthquake in the country.
UNV calls on Haitians (or official residents) who are older than 22 years and willing to offer their skills and capacity to support an inclusive and sustainable response and recovery to the recent earthquake that devastated the country.
UNV is looking for a wide range of professional profiles: Information Managers, Field Assistants, Midwives, Communication Officers, Emergency Medical Technicians, Nutrition Specialists, Shelter Specialists, Logistic Operations Specialists and WASH Specialists, among others.
We invite you to join our national talent pool by creating an account on our UN Volunteer Management Platform. Once registered, individuals are requested to include key information: personal data, qualifications and skills, professional experience and references, among others. See a step-by-step video on how to register.
UNV will contact candidates whose profiles match the specific requirements of available UN Volunteer opportunities, which are updated daily and published through our global website.
UN Volunteers are entitled to a monthly living allowance, and other entitlements and benefits, so they can sustain a modest and secure standard of living, according to the UN Volunteer Conditions of Service, during their assignment.
Do you want to support the humanitarian response in Haiti? Volunteer! And help spread the word about this opportunity to support communities affected by the earthquake in Haiti.
UNV contributes to peace and development through volunteerism worldwide. We work with our United Nations partners to integrate qualified, highly motivated and well supported UN Volunteers into development and humanitarian programming and promote the value and global recognition of volunteerism.
