Working with World Unite!

 
Our worldwide World Unite! team currently consists of 58 key team members (58% female and 42% male) of 20 different nationalities, speaking a total of 25 different languages.
 
We have an extremely low employee turnover - almost all team members who have decided to work with us have been staying with us so far. Therefore most vacant positions are new positions resulting from the growth of our organisation. As they are new position, it is often necessary for new team members "to grow into the role" and to define their exact responsibilities in interaction with the other team members - taking into consideration everyone's strenghts and interests. As opposed to larger organisations, we don't have strong hierarchies and very strict departmental separations of tasks and duties, and you should enjoy working in a fast-paced, "start up" work environment, helping out your colleagues where needed. Even though we are in our 13th year of operations and have become a relevant player in our sector, we have maintained our youthful energy, which is fostering innovation and providing space for professional and personal growth of our team members.
