Assistant Education Officer at the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR)

Posted on Thu 18th Jun, 2020 - hotnigerianjobs.com --- (2 comments)


United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) was created in 1950, during the aftermath of the Second World War, to help millions of Europeans who had fled or lost their homes. We had three years to complete our work and then disband. Today, over 65 years later, our organization is still hard at work, protecting and assisting refugees around the world.

We are recruiting to fill the position below:
