My WFP Story

“If you would like to truly make a difference in the lives of individuals, using multi-sectoral and innovative approaches, then WFP is the right fit for you.” – Nutrition and HIV Officer

The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) seeks individuals of the highest integrity and professionalism who share our humanitarian principles.

WFP celebrates and embraces diversity. It is committed to the principle of equal employment opportunity for all its employees and encourages qualified candidates to apply irrespective of race, color, national origin, ethnic or social background, genetic information, gender, gender identity and/or expression, sexual orientation, religion or belief, HIV status, physical or mental disability.

WFP does not charge a fee for any of the stages throughout the recruitment & selection process.


The United Nations World Food Programme is the world's largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide. The mission of WFP is to help the world achieve Zero Hunger in our lifetimes. Every day, WFP works worldwide to ensure that no child goes to bed hungry and that the poorest and most vulnerable, particularly women and children, can access the nutritious food they need.

The WFP Regional Bureau for East Africa (RBN) is based in Nairobi and provides strategic direction, technical guidance, resource mobilization, and management support to WFP operations and activities in ten countries: Burundi, Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Somalia, Sudan, South Sudan, and Uganda.


The Climate and Disaster Risk Reduction Programmes (PRO-C) unit in WFP Headquarters and our Food Systems (Climate Action, Resilient Livelihoods and Gender) unit in Regional Bureau for Eastern Africa (RBN) provide guidance and support to WFP Country Offices (COs) and governments on activities related to climate risk management, climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction. In the Greater Horn of Africa sub-region, the management of climate risk is a key entry point for reducing vulenrability to the climate shocks that disproportionately affect countries in the region, undermining development gains, and making humanitarian response late and consequently more expensive and inefficient. One of WFP's flagship programmes for managing climate risks is its Anticipatory Action (AA) programme, an innovative approach that enables early warnings systems to trigger actions that prevent and mitigate, to the extent possible, the impact of extreme weather events on the food security and nutrition of the most vulnerable populations.
As the frequency of these extreme weather events increase, and available humanitarian aid shrinks, there is an unprecedented need for early warning systems (EWS) to skillfully predict where and when a hazard will occur, moving beyond only preparing to respond once hazard impacts are visible, and instead protecting lives before they need saving. However, to build trust in these EWS that enable communities to act and governments to invest in, the early warning systems must be able to reliably predict extreme weather-events weeks ahead of time. Improving early-warning systems will be crucial towards helping society become more resilient to climate extremes, and as such improved weather forecasts are a key component to climate adaptation programs. This type of thinking requires new partnerships, new ideas, and new technologies, which is why WFP is working with universities, international and regional weather forecast providers, and Google’s AI for Social Good Program, a program that aims to provide new ways of working to leverage emerging technologies to meaningfully improve people's lives.
To support this new partnership, WFP is seeking a project manager for WFPs 2023 – 2026 project: Strengthening Early Warning Systems for Anticipatory Actions -
Machine learning for post processing ensemble weather forecasts using non-traditional weather observations. The project manager will have experience in managing multistakeholder, multiyear projects across technical subjects such as climate change, anticipatory action, disaster risk management, numerical weather prediction, and/or other complimentary climate related programs. Based in WFP Nairobi and reporting to the Regional AA Coordinator, the Project Mangager will be responsible for the development of work plans, implementation reports, budgeting, communications and advocacy, stakeholder management including the organization of workshops, tranings, future proposals, end of year reports and other project related activities.
