Engaging with UNV: Short-term international UN Volunteers

Short-term international UN Volunteers come from all walks of life and are as diverse as the projects they support. Short-term international UN Volunteers, assigned for a period from two weeks to less than three months, allow UN partner agencies to have an agile, flexible and adaptable talent solution when specific skill sets are required for a definite period.

This option may be useful for rapid deployment in many areas, such as shoring up emergency responses, census activities, and in general for projects that require a quick scaling up or rapid adaptation to changing circumstances. This short-term initiative often suits diaspora nationals, the corporate sector and retirees.
