Working at the IAEA

The IAEA offers a dynamic, multicultural work environment. Its staff comes from over 100 countries and works in a wide range of technical and scientific fields.

“The IAEA is a great place to work. Our mandate has been summarized as Atoms for Peace. Today, our mandate could be better understood as Atoms for Peace and Development.”

IAEA Director General, Yukiya Amano

The IAEA has a world-class, diverse and multi-disciplinary workforce. With more than 2,500 staff working in a wide range of nuclear and related disciplines, it draws on their expertise to ensure the peaceful use of nuclear material and application of nuclear techniques for sustainable development.

The Agency’s Headquarters is in Vienna, Austria, where the majority of staff is located. The IAEA also maintains regional offices in Toronto and Tokyo, liaison offices in New York and Geneva, and research laboratories in Seibersdorf, Austria, and in Monaco.

The IAEA offers a variety of work arrangements to meet the needs of its diverse staff. This includes flexible working hours, part-time work and job-sharing arrangements. The IAEA has a generous benefits and entitlements package, including paid time off, maternity and paternity leave, health insurance, a pension programme, education grants, and other benefits, which are determined by type of contract.
