Jóvenes profesionales: ¡La OMC los necesita!


Buscamos personas jóvenes, dinámicas y trabajadoras interesadas en el comercio y con ilusión por aprender a trabajar en la OMC durante un año. Se requiere espíritu aventurero y actitud positiva.

The WTO is welcoming applications for its 2022 Young Professionals Programme (YPP), which allows qualified young professionals from developing and least-developed countries to enhance their knowledge regarding WTO and international trade issues. The YPP is a unique opportunity to gain hands-on experience which can help open the door for future professional opportunities in the field of multilateral diplomacy and global trade.

The YPP selection gives preference to young professionals from developing and least-developed countries that are members of the WTO and whose nationals are currently under-represented or not represented in the organization’s Secretariat. The programme is part of the Secretariat’s overall goal to increase its diversity to better reflect the make-up of its membership.

Candidates up to the age of 32, as of 1 January 2022, from eligible countries are invited to submit their application by 29 April 2021. The selected candidates will work at the WTO Secretariat for one year, starting in January 2022.

The 2021 cadre of Young Professionals includes 14 professionals from: Bangladesh, Belize, Dominican Republic, Eswatini, Guatemala, Georgia, Indonesia, Malawi, Mauritania, Namibia, Nicaragua, Nigeria, Chinese Taipei and Thailand. They were selected from more than 2,400 candidates following a competitive selection process. More about these young professionals is available here. Nearly 60 professionals have participated in the programme since it was launched in 2017.
