Because I am feeling particularly generous today, I thought I would post some of the job sites I use when I’m searching for international development jobs.
- http://www.devex.com/en/jobs (Great for searching entry level positions)
- http://unjoblist.org/lists/ (I like getting these emails, although I think I have only applied to one job)
- http://www.charityvillage.com/cv/main.asp (Mostly Canadian)
- http://jobs-emplois.gc.ca/index-eng.htm (Government Jobs)
- http://www.jobbank.gc.ca/ (Great for getting email alerts on specific international development jobs)
Others I peruse from time to time

Organizations I often check for updates (these link straight to the “careers” page)
- CANADEM (Get registered on their international deployment roster. It’s free!)
- Save the Children
- International Rescue Committee
- International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies
- National Democratic Institute
I also often check country offices (for example, UNDP Tanzania Country Office or OXFAM Tanzania Country Office) for updates. Sometimes they have more job listings you won’t find anywhere else, in the place you want to work.
No, this isn’t one of those internet scams… (although, feel free to send me your bank account numbers and mother’s maiden name).
Today, after searching through some resources on the UNICEF internal pages, I came across this site that I wish I had found years ago.
It’s a UNV initiative where partner organizations of the UN (and sometimes UN departments themselves) post volunteer opportunities that you can do online.
Some of the projects seem really worth while, and there are postings in various fields, such as education, environment, etc. This is certainly something that will help boost your CV if you don’t have a lot of experience, while really helping out an organization. Win-Win!
It’s super simple and really easy to apply. I applied to a few myself to do when work gets a little slow/after work.
If you decide to do one, let me know how it goes. And don’t forget those bank account numbers.
