Application process and requirements
Candidates interested in the Junior Professional Officer (JPO) Programme are required to meet the following general eligibility requirements: be a Canadian citizen, be less than 32 years of age at the time of the application, possess a completed Master's degree in a related discipline. United Nations (UN) development agencies will select the best candidates based on qualifications matching with posting profiles. Written and spoken proficiency in two of the UN's three working languages (English, French, Spanish) is a definite asset and, in some cases, required. As well, work experience (paid or voluntary) in a developing country is a definite asset.
