UNICEF works in the world’s toughest places to reach the most disadvantaged children and adolescents – and to protect the rights of every child, everywhere. Across more than 190 countries and territories, we do whatever it takes to help children survive, thrive and fulfill their potential, from early childhood through adolescence.
The world’s largest provider of vaccines, we support child health and nutrition, safe water and sanitation, quality education and skill building, HIV prevention and treatment for mothers and babies, and the protection of children and adolescents from violence and exploitation.
Before, during and after humanitarian emergencies, UNICEF is on the ground, bringing lifesaving help and hope to children and families. Non-political and impartial, we are never neutral when it comes to defending children’s rights and safeguarding their lives and futures.
And we never give up.
UNICEF offers an attractive remuneration package with competitive pay and benefits, in accordance with United Nations-wide salary scales, policies and practices.
Staff are eligible to participate in one of the United Nations-sponsored medical insurance plans, which include dental insurance.
Salaries, grants and allowances paid by the United Nations to staff are normally exempt from income tax.
Depending on your contract type, you may be entitled to family allowances, including dependency allowances if you have an eligible dependent spouse and/or child(ren) and, under certain conditions, an education grant if you have eligible children in school.
IP staff may qualify for a rental subsidy if they are newly arrived at the duty station and their rent represents too high a proportion of their total remuneration.
IP staff may have their travel and shipping expenses covered when moving from one duty station to another. An assignment grant may also be provided to IPs, to assist them in meeting initial extraordinary costs when arriving at or relocating to a new duty station.
At emergency and high-risk duty stations, a hardship allowance linked to living and working conditions is paid to IPs, and where there are restrictions on bringing family members, a non-family hardship allowance is also paid.
If you have a staff appointment of six months or more or complete six months of service without an interruption, you become a participant in the United Nations Joint Staff Pension Fund. A compulsory contribution will be deducted from your monthly salary.
