Careers

Temporary assistance

Occasionally, UNESCO needs services provided by persons other than its own permanent staff. These temporary services enable the Organization to deal with a short-term overload of work or to bring in ad-hoc outside expertise. Temporary contracts at UNESCO fall within the following categories:

  • Project Appointments
  • Short-Term Support Services
  • Consultants and Experts
  • Internships

Project Appointments

A Project Appointment (PA), is a contractual modality to cover specific projects or activities of a time-limited duration financed by extra-budgetary funds, in the field and at Headquarters and for technical cooperation in UNESCO Category I Institutes and Centres.

Short-Term opportunities

If you are looking for a short term opportunity in support functions such as office assistance, secretarial, building services at Headquarters (Paris), you may wish to register your CV on UNESCO Experts/Support Services Roster under Short term support services at Headquarters.

Please note that only residents in France may be considered for a short term assignment in a support function at Headquarters.

Consultants and Experts
