The government is urging Monegasques to get involved in the UN’s Young Professionals Programme, which is now accepting applications.
The Young Professionals Programme (YPP) is a recruitment initiative for talented, highly qualified professionals to start a career as an international civil servant with the United Nations Secretariat.
Each year the UN invites un- and under-represented Member States to participate in the programme to ensure equitable representation of all Member States in the UN Secretariat.
The programme consists of an entrance examination and professional development programmes once successful candidates start their career with the UN.
The YPP examination is held once a year and is open to nationals of countries participating in the annual recruitment exercise, including Monaco.
Eligible applicants must have the nationality of a participating country, must hold at least a first-level university degree relevant for the exam subject they are applying for, must be 32 or younger in the year of the examination and must be fluent in either English or French.
Depending on the staffing needs of the United Nations, applicants are invited to apply for different exam subjects.
