For every child, a chance

As we enter the 4th year of the current CPD 2020-2025, UNICEF Mexico is faced with significant changes in the country, especially regarding children and adolescents, impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020-2022 and the growing demands related to the migratory situation, especially in the northern border, among other issues. In response to these challenges, the office has grown exponentially in staff number and allocated budget. We have also established field offices and we are operating under a complex programmatic context to respond to humanitarian needs while maintaining a high level of advocacy and system strengthening at the federal and state levels. Given this context, we are reinforcing our capacity of planning, monitoring, and evaluation for the central office in connection with the field offices, ensuring coherent, strategic, and efficient planning, as well as strengthening our data and evidence-driven approach to programming.

UNICEF is here to serve the world’s most disadvantaged children and our global workforce must reflect the diversity of those children.

We offer a wide range of measures to our staff, including paid parental leave, time off for breastfeeding purposes, and reasonable accommodation for persons with disabilities. UNICEF strongly encourages the use of flexible working arrangements.

UNICEF does not hire candidates who are married to children (persons under 18). UNICEF has a zero-tolerance policy on conduct that is incompatible with the aims and objectives of the United Nations and UNICEF, including sexual exploitation and abuse, sexual harassment, abuse of authority, and discrimination. UNICEF is committed to promoting the protection and safeguarding of all children. All selected candidates will undergo rigorous reference and background checks and will be expected to adhere to these standards and principles. Background checks will include the verification of academic credential(s) and employment history. Selected candidates may be required to provide additional information to conduct a background check.

UNICEF appointments are subject to medical clearance. Issuance of a visa by the host country of the duty station is required for IP positions and will be facilitated by UNICEF. Appointments may also be subject to inoculation (vaccination) requirements, including against SARS-CoV-2 (Covid). Should you be selected for a position with UNICEF, you either must be inoculated as required or receive a medical exemption from the relevant department of the UN.
