Job Posting: UNICEF

UNICEF seeks an Ombudsman for the Funds and Programmes, to be based in the Office of the United Nations Ombudsman, New York Headquarters. The ideal candidate will have an advanced university degree, 15 years of professional experience, including five at international level in dispute resolution, knowledge of the Funds and Programmes, effective computer skills, and fluency in English with proficiency in another UN language. (UN Jobs.)


  1. Realistically, how big is the potential pool of applicants with those characteristics?

  2. I don't understand how they expect more qualifications for the UNICEF Ombudsman than the Head Ombudsman for the whole UN has?!
