Applying Online

All applicants are strongly encouraged to apply online by following the instructions listed for each staff category section. Once a position is selected, you will be prompted to fill in an online application form, including uploading your Personal History Form (PHF) and Cover Letter.

Online applications will be acknowledged within 24 hours of submission. If you do not receive an e-mail acknowledgment within this timeframe, your application may not have been received. In such cases, please re-submit the application by following the same process again, or you can write to us directly at IDLO for assistance.

Review Process & Timeline

Your application will be evaluated against the skills, education, and work experience required for the position. If you are among the top candidates selected for the job, we will contact you to schedule an interview or to discuss the next steps in the process.

Please note that each position has a specified review date listed next to it. This is the earliest date that applications will be reviewed. It is still possible to apply for any open position anytime, even past the review date, as long as it listed on our website. The process to review applications and finalize the short-list of candidates for interviews usually takes 45 to 60 days past the review date. Once the short-list is finalized, we will endeavor to send an update to all candidates who have applied for the position as soon as possible.
