United Nations Office on Drugs & Crime (UNODC)
What is it?
The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) is a global leader in the fight against illicit drugs and international crime. Established in 1997, UNODC has approximately 500 staff members worldwide. Its headquarters are in Vienna and it has 21 field offices as well as liaison offices in New York. UNODC relies on voluntary contributions, mainly from governments, for 90 per cent of its budget.
UNODC is mandated to assist Member States in their struggle against illicit drugs, crime and terrorism
The three pillars of the UNODC work programme are:
Research and analytical work to increase knowledge and understanding of drugs and crime issues and expand the evidence-base for policy and operational decisions;
Normative work to assist States in the ratification and implementation of the international treaties, the development of domestic legislation on drugs, crime and terrorism, and the provision of secretariat and substantive services to the treaty-based and governing bodies; and
Field–based technical cooperation projects to enhance the capacity of Member States to counteract illicit drugs, crime and terrorism.
Qualifications & Qualities
The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) is seeking qualified, energetic professionals in a wide range of fields to combat the threats posed by drugs, crime and terrorism. UNODC offers challenging assignments - monitoring drug abuse and trafficking trends, helping countries achieve substantial reductions in drug supply and demand and assisting countries in forging new partnerships for tackling important issues such as money laundering, smuggling of migrants and trafficking in human beings. Around 350 people work at UNODC's Vienna headquarters and in field offices around the world.
Gaining employment within the United Nations is extremely competitive. Most positions require an advanced university degree, knowledge of at least one and preferably two of the UN’s working languages and often relevant professional experience.
The UN's web-based recruitment system provides information on UNODC and UN-wide professional level job openings (P-level) and required qualifications. It can be accessed at https://jobs.un.org/elearn/production/home.html.
Salary & Benefits
The Organisation offers attractive remuneration packages and benefits. Starting salaries are based upon academic and professional qualifications, as well as the level of the post. The base salary scales are set by the General Assembly. Subject to the type of appointment, staff may be entitled to receive various allowances and fringe benefits.
Most member states have granted United Nations staff exemption from national income taxation on their United Nations salaries. However, a few member States do tax the earnings of their nationals. In such cases, the UN organisation reimburses the income tax to the staff member.
