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 Human Rights and Refugees, the Programme Assistant will gain experience of how we work to strengthen international human rights standards through the United Nations.

Our Human Rights and Refugees programme raises up the concerns of marginalized groups, so they are better understood by international policy makers, which leads to stronger international standards. Our current priorities are human rights in the context of migration, conscientious objection to military service, and children of prisoners.

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