Associate experts programme

The associate experts programme offers young professionals who are graduates of universities or institutions of higher education an opportunity to acquire professional experience by working in the United Nations Secretariat. Associate experts, who usually have limited or no professional experience, are recruited under bilateral agreements between the United Nations and donor countries to work in development projects or regional projects or activities within the broad fields of competence of the United Nations. Associate experts are generally nationals of one of the 18 countries that participate in the programme (Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, the Republic of Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom), although some of those countries also provide financial support to enable nationals of developing countries, in particular least developed countries, to take part in the associate expert programme.
