Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.
And we never give up.
For every child, [insert tagline]

In addition to the advantages linked to staff under different types of contracts, national staff benefit from SECTO (Special Emergency Compressed Time-Off), which offers the possibility of taking breaks outside the duty station following a well-defined cycle and allows family reunification on a regular basis.
