UNDP Graduate Programme Receives Career Development Roundtable Award for Innovation in Recruitment

“With the Graduate Programme, for the first time we piloted a new approach to recruitment — which has tangibly demonstrated how we can effectively leverage digital solutions in the recruitment process and for high-volume recruitment. Some of the lessons learned from the programme have now been adopted by other programmes.”

— Lykke Andersen, Head of Talent Acquisition, UNDP
