UNFPA is one of the United Nations’ organizations which participates in the Junior Professional Officer (JPO) programme (sometimes referred to as the Associate Expert Programme).

JPOs are sponsored by their government (or in some very limited cases a JPO Programme participating government may sponsor a small number of developing country nationals).

The purpose of the JPO programme is to provide young people (normally under 32 years of age) who want to pursue a career in development assistance with professional experience within the United Nations system.

If you are interested in learning more about the JPO Programme please go the JPO Service Center site (www.jposc.org) to see if you are eligible and to find details on how to apply.
