Junior Professional Programme

The Junior Professional Officer programme (JPO) comprises a special category of staff members who are young professional men and women, interested in acquiring experience in the development field.  These staff members are sponsored by their respective Governments to acquire experience in international development cooperation activities under the close direction of senior UNICEF officials, while contributing to the implementation of UNICEF’s country programmes.

The Programme also provides JPOs with a unique personal and cultural experience and allows UNICEF to identify talent that could become part of the organization’s human resource pool.
