UNICEF is dedicated to promoting the safety and security of every child. Therefore, all chosen applicants will go through thorough reference and background checks, and they will be required to follow these standards and ideals. Verification of academic credentials and employment history will be part of background checks. It could be necessary to request more information from chosen candidates so that a background check can be done.
