If you were notified about unsuccessful application While our recruitment system successfully implements UNHCR policies, we have noticed some marginal errors. Please rest assured that a human recruiter will duly review your application as per our internal processes when it was declined due to lack of required number of years of relevant work experience. For external applicants: We would like to call your attention on the eligibility of International Professional (P) category: According to our Recruitment and Assignments Policy, P staff members will not normally serve in the country of their nationality, and the first regular appointment in the P category must be outside the staff member's country of nationality. In practical terms this means that you are not eligible to apply for International Professional vacancies advertised in the country where you are national of. Past application data and previously created applicant accounts are not migrated to this platform. Therefore, when applying for current vacancies, external applicants (not current UNHCR workforce members) should create a new account (“Sign In” on the top left corner >> Create account). Once successfully registered, you can start filling in your data and apply for vacancies. Applications for vacancies advertised on UNHCR’s old recruitment platform will be duly reviewed and processed in the old platform (but no data will be migrated to the new platform).

As part of the transitional measures, candidates who were successfully accepted to a Talent Pool (now called Evergreens) have received e-mail instructions for re-submitting their application on UNHCR’s new recruitment platform. The Evergreens are advertised per grade/ level; candidates can apply to one or more levels. If meeting all eligibility criteria at the given level and subject to functional clearance (if applicable), candidates will be added to the relevant talent pool. Applications will be valid for one year, after which candidates can re-confirm their interest. Evergreens are for sourcing candidates for Temporary Appointments (TAs).
