UNODC is seeking qualified, energetic professionals in a wide range of fields to join us in our efforts to combat the threats posed by drugs, crime and terrorism. UNODC offers challenging assignments - monitoring drug abuse and trafficking trends, helping States achieve substantial reductions in drug supply and demand and assisting countries in forging new partnerships for tackling important issues such as money-laundering, smuggling of migrants and trafficking in human beings. Around 1,500 people work at UNODC headquarters in Vienna and in field offices around the world.

Today's globalized crime and drug problems can be fought, but only with the best and the brightest on our team.
