OECD Young Professionals Programme

Ready for a career in global policy making? Then become an OECD YP. 

When opting for a Young Professionals Programme you have to choose the best. At the OECD our YPs work with experienced and enthusiastic people from a rich diversity of cultures, languages and professional backgrounds. YPs research and analyse current policy issues under the supervision of top professionals, and participate in conferences. We match assignments to academic background, professional experience, and personal preference. And because the assignments are associated with the organisation’s work programme and include knowledge sharing sessions with senior staff, you know you are working on policy issues that matter. Not only do YPs have access to the OECD’s staff training programmes, but each YP spends six months working with a mentor. You can also seek advice from former YPs and tap into the networking opportunities within the OECD and beyond. In fact, as a YP, you become part of a network of more than 60,000 policy makers and shapers who come to the OECD for workshops, meetings and conferences throughout year.

YP candidates will ideally have a graduate degree, excellent English or French, and two years of relevant experience. YPs work on fixed-term appointments of two years, and are based in the OECD’s headquarters in Paris, France. Candidates must be born on or after 1 January 1981 and have OECD member country nationality. We offer competitive salaries and an attractive benefits package.
