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
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.
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
A consultant/expert is a recognized specialist with particular skills, expertise or knowledge who is contracted by UNESCO for a short period, either in an advisory or consultative capacity or to provide a product or service.
UNESCO encourages men and women candidates from all geographical areas to register their interest for consultancy opportunities on the Experts/Support Services Roster.
