International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO)

The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) is a UN specialized agency, established by States in 1944 to manage the administration and governance of the Convention on International Civil Aviation (Chicago Convention).
ICAO works with the Convention’s 192 Member States and industry groups to reach consensus on international civil aviation Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs) and policies in support of a safe, efficient, secure, economically sustainable and environmentally responsible civil aviation sector. These SARPs and policies are used by ICAO Member States to ensure that their local civil aviation operations and regulations conform to global norms, which in turn permits more than 100,000 daily flights in aviation’s global network to operate safely and reliably in every region of the world.
In addition to its core work resolving consensus-driven international SARPs and policies among its Member States and industry, and among many other priorities and programmes, ICAO also coordinates assistance and capacity building for States in support of numerous aviation development objectives; produces global plans to coordinate multilateral strategic progress for safety and air navigation; monitors and reports on numerous air transport sector performance metrics; and audits States’ civil aviation oversight capabilities in the areas of safety and security.

At ICAO we are always looking for energetic, passionate, motivated individuals to join our team. If you are interested in a career in a high performing team environment, then we would like to hear from you.


The headquarters of the Secretariat is located in Montreal and we also have Regional Offices located in Bangkok, Cairo, Dakar, Lima, Mexico, Nairobi and Paris.


ICAO’s Technical Cooperation Programme roster of over 3,000 experts provides advice and assistance to Contracting States in a variety of tasks, such as; civil aviation master plans, air traffic  control  services, airport modernization, safety oversight, regulatory frameworks, MRTD’s and e-Passports, and more.  Experts typically work together with national specialists to transfer their knowledge and at the same time provide on-the-job training.

The jobs listed on the TCB Field Projects Prospective Jobs website are generic-based jobs which are similar to vacancies posted on our TCB Field Projects website.  Candidates should only apply for vacancies if they possess the minimum qualifications requirements listed in the job description.  Given the specific areas of specialization listed on our prospective jobs, some candidates may need to apply for one or more positions.

After a candidate submits their application, it will be assessed by a Recruitment Specialist and, if found suitable, their name will be placed on our TCB roster in this specific field of expertise.  Candidates will be advised by email on the assessment of their application.  Due to the high volume of applications received, there may be a delay in the evaluation of your application.

Over time, candidates placed on our roster will need to withdraw their application from the prospective post in order to provide additional information on their education and work experience.
