Working in International cooperation

The United Nations Office at Geneva (UNOG), other international organisations and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) based in Geneva offer students, young university graduates and experienced professionals different work opportunities.

The FDFA has been tasked with increasing the number of Swiss nationals working in international organisations because of Switzerland's under-representation in a number of them. If you are interested in working for an international organisation the FDFA recommends that you contact the candidatures section, which can help you with the application process.

The Centre for Information, Counselling and Training for Professions relating to International Cooperation (cinfo), has been mandated by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) to inform the Swiss public of career and job opportunities in international cooperation and to support individual job seekers.
