The OECD Young Professional Programme 2015 is now open for applications until 25 November 2014. Selected candidates will start work in summer 2015.
The OECD Young Professionals Programme (YPP) brings talented entry-level professionals from diverse backgrounds into the OECD. Our YPs are at the centre of an international network, involved in some of the most innovative, high-profile research and policy discussions taking place.
|Meet the YPs :
Past, present and future
|We’re looking for candidates who are passionate about the objectives of the OECD and promoting international policy co-operation. YPs understand the issues involved in international work, and have the analytical and drafting skills to contribute to policy-related studies.

OECD Young Professional Cohort 2013

YP assignments are based on organisational requirements and matched to academic background, professional experience, and personal preference.
Assignments for YPs have been selected for their alignment with the Secretary-General’s Strategic Objectives and frequently involve horizontal projects connecting different policy areas in the organisation. An example of the assignments the members of YP cohort 2013 are currently fulfilling can be found here. These assignments will vary with the next round of the Programme.
YPs at the OECD are recruited for a fixed-term appointment of two years. At the end of the programme, based on performance and organisational needs, YPs may wish to continue their careers at the OECD by applying for available vacancies.
YP assignments take place at the OECD’s headquarters in Paris, France, one of the most attractive cities in the world.
Travel may be required for a variety of reasons including collecting information, working with specialists, experts and policy makers from all over the world and communicating the OECD’s work to a broad range of audiences. The amount of travel varies depending on the area of work and role.
Training and mentorship at the OECD
We encourage active professional development throughout the Programme both on the job and through specific training sessions. YPs have access to the OECD’s staff training offerings, as well as training sessions especially designed for the Programme. To facilitate career development, each YP will work with a mentor for a six-month period. Additionally, YPs receive informal mentorship and guidance from previous YP cohorts. Throughout the Programme, YPs will have ample networking opportunities within the OECD and beyond.
Salary and benefits at the OECD
We offer competitive tax-free salaries plus an attractive benefits package, which may include expatriation and family allowances depending on your individual situation. For a summary of conditions, please see salaries and benefits.
