The UNDESA Italian Junior Professional Officers Program 2021/2022 is now accepting applications.

UNDESA Italian Junior Professional Officers Program 2022

The Italian Junior Professional Officers Program (JPO Program) is a multilateral technical cooperation project sponsored by the Italian government and administered by the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN/DESA).

It allows Italian individuals with a Master’s degree who have strong English and Italian skills and is under 30 years old (31 or 33 for graduates in medicine and surgery) to earn two years of work experience with foreign organizations.

A small number of posts have been allocated to applicants from poor nations in the last four years (Least Developed Countries and priority Countries for the Italian Development Cooperation).

The Program serves two purposes: on the one hand, it assists international organizations in carrying out their activities by providing skilled personnel for a two-year period; on the other hand, it provides young qualified professionals seeking an international career with the opportunity to gain two years of work experience, increasing their chances of finding a suitable job in international organizations or in the international field.

Benefits

Salary, medical insurance, life insurance, pension contributions, as well as allowances for travel shipping, installation at the duty station, and repatriation are all included in Junior Professional Officer contracts.
