UN Traineeship Programme Cohort X Offers Inclusive Opportunities in Nepal

The United Nations in Nepal, in partnership with Frontline Consult Pvt. Ltd, has just launched the UN Traineeship Programme Cohort X. This is a big step towards making sure everyone has a fair chance, no matter their background. The program will give Nepali candidates from marginalized groups, gender and sexual minorities, and people with disabilities a chance to get 11 months of training. It's all about giving everyone a fair shot at success.

This pioneering program offers selected candidates full-time on-the-job training, get mentoring, and gain real-world experience within the United Nations. Trainees will get to try out different areas like Administration, Disaster Risk Management, Gender Equality, Health, Education, and more. It's all about giving them a chance to explore and grow in a supportive environment.

Applicants must meet specific criteria, including:

  • University graduate (minimum Bachelor's degree)
  • Belonging to an Excluded and Marginalized Group (Disadvantage Janajati, Dalit, Madhesi, Religious Minority)
  • Belonging to LGBITQ++
  • Persons with Disabilities (from any Social Group)
  • Respect for UN Core Values: Professionalism, Integrity, and Respect for Diversity
  • Strong commitment to learning
  • Basic communication skills (verbal and written) in English and Nepali languages
  • Commitment to complete the 11-month Traineeship Program

Interested individuals can apply by filling out an online form available at www.frontline.com.np/untrainee or by submitting physical copies of the duly filled Online Application Form (available at www.frontline.com.np/untrainee), along with the Motivational Letter (not exceeding 200 words), Recent Resume, Copy of Bachelor's Degree Transcript, Self Declaration Letter, and Copy of  Nepali Citizenship to Frontline Consult Private Limited.

Selected candidates will benefit from a stipend, social security coverage, and other benefits as per labor laws. It's important to note that this initiative doesn't entail permanent employment with any UN agency, and neither the UN nor Frontline Consult charges any fees at any stage of the recruitment process.

Additionally, the United Nations upholds a zero-tolerance policy against sexual exploitation, abuse, and harassment. All selected candidates will undergo a stringent safe hiring process to ensure compliance with these principles.

This pioneering initiative not only offers invaluable training but also emphasizes the UN's commitment to fostering inclusivity and providing equal opportunities to all segments of society in Nepal. The programme stands as a testament to the UN's dedication to creating a more diverse and equitable workforce.
