Professional Vacancies

  • Professional staff are hired internationally and occupy leadership functions, or positions requiring significant technical expertise. Openings for professional jobs can be found at all duty stations where FAO is present.
  • External Candidates are offered a fixed-term appointment that is subject to a probationary period of 12 months that can be extended to a maximum period of 18 months.  Candidates recommended for appointment will be required to take language tests to establish the level of their language skills.  Should the candidate not meet the level of language skills elicited in the vacancy announcement at the time of recruitment, she/he will be required to acquire it within the probationary period before the appointment can be confirmed by FAO.  Please note that FAO offers courses to staff members in all six official languages.
