How do I apply?

UNICEF Supply Division has local rosters for a variety of functions, at different levels. The Rosters are a call for applications for future function-specific opportunities, determined by emerging needs. Rosters are not linked to a current vacancy and will be reviewed on an ongoing basis.

To apply for this Procurement Roster, you will need to create a profile in UNICEF’s online recruitment system. This involves submitting details such as personal information, education, experience, languages, skills and work preferences. 

NB: UNICEF staff members globally and applicants who are EU nationals or in possession of a valid work permit for Denmark are eligible to apply. General Service (GS) staff are personally responsible for any travel and accommodation arrangements and UNICEF will not cover any costs related to relocation.

Note that the selected candidate is responsible for obtaining residence permit and any required extension thereof as such an extension cannot be dependent on an employment with UNICEF. (This does not apply for current UNICEF staff members who are non-EU nationals and recruited internationally as residency will be linked to the position with UNICEF).

We advise you to apply soon, as applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Only applicants who are identified for further assessment will be contacted.
