How to Join the UNV Talent Pool
Are you an experienced professional in one of the above areas? Are you willing to make a difference as a UN Volunteer?

We invite you to join our talent pool by creating a profile on UNV’s recently launched Unified Volunteering Platform (UVP). Once you have a profile, you can browse all available volunteer opportunities on the landing page, or, when logged in, under the “DoAs” menu item.

Already registered in the UNV Talent Pool? Your profile was migrated to the new Unified Volunteering Platform. Make sure to reset your password and log into UVP to update your profile. You can then apply to all available volunteer opportunities.

Required Qualifications
The majority of national UNV assignments require candidates to be at least 27 years of age, to have at least a Bachelor’s degree and a minimum of three years of relevant work experience. However, we also expect to deploy national UN Expert Volunteers (35+ years of age, 15+ years of experience), UN Youth Volunteers (18-26 years of age, 0-3 years of experience) and UN Community Volunteers.

Volunteer Entitlements
We support UN Volunteers with a benefits package during service. UN Volunteers are entitled to a Monthly Living Allowance (MLA) plus entry lump sum payment, transportation, annual leave and medical coverage amongst other entitlements and benefits, so that they can sustain a modest and secure standard of living while on service. For more details, visit the UVP Explore tab, where you will find detailed documents on the UNV Conditions of Service for all volunteer categories. You can also use our convenient entitlement calculator to check benefits for a particular UNV assignment you are interested in applying for.
