Job Description

Quaker United Nations Office (QUNO)


This is a one-year junior professional role for a person with an interest in international affairs and the United Nations and an alignment with Quaker values. Working primarily as an assistant to QUNO’s Representative for Peace and Disarmament, the Programme Assistant will gain experience of how we work to strengthen peacebuilding and disarmament processes and arms control measures through the United Nations.

Our Peace & Disarmament programme raises up the concerns of social justice linked to peacebuilding and arms control, so they are better understood by international policy makers, which leads to stronger international standards. Our current priorities are human rights-based approaches to peacebuilding, enhancing conventional arms control measures, and bridging silos at the UN.

The deadline for applications is 20 May 2022. For more information download the complete job description and application form at:
