7 Steps to get a job in the United Nations


The Norwegian Refugee Council has been present in Ukraine since 2014, helping more than 700,000 people with food, shelter, water, sanitation, and legal assistance.ย Rapid change of situation in February 2022 during which whole Ukraine became affected by the conflict required significant scale-up of emergency programmes.ย 

Today NRC is providing support to people affected by armed conflict and those fleeing in search of safety.

Prior to the escalation in armed conflict in February, NRCโ€™s operations focused on government-controlled areas (GCA) of the Donbas Region (Luhansk and Donetsk Oblasts). With the temporary relocation of NRCโ€™s staff and operations to Central and Western Ukraine, NRC will continue to support populations in the East with emergency, life-saving food, NFI and emergency shelter assistance to people trapped in hot zones. In the West, NRC established a temporary national HUB in the Ivano-Frankivska region and is establishing area offices in Ternopil and Dnipro. Additionally, NRC is planning to establish field offices in Lviv and Mokachevo. The Western response will focus on assisting people on the move with cash and ICLA services and provide multi-sectoral support to key transit points. The Eastern response will initially focus on procurement and delivery of food and key relief items to Donetsk, Luhansk and Kharkiv regions.

We are seeking highly qualified, resilient, dynamic professionals to respond to Ukraine crisis and support people in Ukraine and refugees in the neighbouring host countries.ย 

Your passion, skills, and experience can make a big difference.
