The Secretariat of the WTO is seeking candidates for the World Trade Organization Young Professionals Program for 2023.
The WTO Young Professionals Programme (YPP) is a unique opportunity for qualified young professionals to enhance their knowledge and skills on WTO and international trade issues. The Programme aims to widen the pool of professionals from these WTO Members, who can later be more competitive with respect to recruitment in the WTO and/or other regional and international organizations.
Monthly Salary: CHF 4,000
The areas of work may include, inter alia, the following (in alphabetical order):
Preference shall be given to nationals from WTO Members without any representation as well as from developing and least developed countries (LDCs) Members with low representation at the professional level in the Secretariat. Particular attention will be given to developing and LDCs WTO Members that have not participated in previous cohorts of the YPP.
Only applications from nationals of WTO Members will be accepted. Female candidates are strongly encouraged to apply to this Programme.
The WTO may use various communication technologies such as video or teleconference for the assessment and evaluation of candidates. The recruitment process may also involve the use of various forms of testing, assessment centers, interviews, and reference checks.
