UNFPA recruits a new generation of leaders

The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) has announced the call for applications for its Leadership Pool, a recruiting initiative to identify future leaders to fill Representative, Deputy Representative and International Operation Manager positions at the country level. 

UNFPA is seeking leaders who thrive in a dynamic, international environment and who will help drive our 2022-2025 Strategic Plan and the 2030 Agenda through innovation, co-creation, and systems-thinking. We need leaders who are exceptional in managing resources, operate with transparency, and commit to deliver excellence in programme results. Our leaders need to be able to maneuver complex political settings, often in humanitarian and fragile contexts; leverage partnerships; and position UNFPA with system-wide solutions that reach beyond individual entities and interests. Most importantly, our leaders must be skilled people managers, helping deliver commitments to our most important asset: staff and personnel. 

In 2021, UNFPA will invite 80 candidates to complete a virtual leadership assessment in November. Please apply for the Leadership Pool via our e-recruitment system by 31 August 2021.
