WFP seeks candidates of the highest integrity and professionalism who share our humanitarian principles.
Selection of staff is made on a competitive basis, and we are committed to promoting diversity and gender balance.
The United Nations World Food Programme is the world's largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide. The mission of WFP is to help the world achieve Zero Hunger in our lifetimes. Every day, WFP works worldwide to ensure that no child goes to bed hungry and that the poorest and most vulnerable, particularly women and children, can access the nutritious food they need.
Operational readiness is central to optimizing the speed, volume and quality of humanitarian assistance to be delivered during a large-scale disaster. The way emergency responses are operated has a massive impact on the speed and quality of the assistance provided to disaster victims.
Enhancing resilience for vulnerable communities has been a core foundation of WFP’s work in Bangladesh for decades. WFP commits through its new Country Strategy Plan (CSP) for innovative approaches to enhance resilience so that improvements in livelihoods, food security and nutrition are not repeatedly lost in areas, which are most exposed to climate-related shocks.
