The OSCE’s Junior Professional Officer (JPO) programme provides young graduates with an opportunity to gain OSCE Secretariat and field operation/Institution experience. Two intakes for six young professionals are accepted each year, with the first three-month period being spent in the Secretariat, and the following six months in an OSCE field operation or one of the institutions.
The Programme will continue in 2014 with two new rounds of six JPOs. A vacancy notice will be issued in November 2013 for the round commencing in April 2014, and another vacancy notice will appear in May/June 2014 for the round commencing in October 2014. We advise interested candidates who have graduated in a field relevant to the OSCE's activities to check the OSCE employment website under seconded vacancies during these months and apply using the online application form.
