All job openings in the UN Secretariat are published on the United Nations Careers Portal: careers.un.org.

The United Nations Secretariat is transitioning to a new online recruitment system. During this transition period, both the existing and the new system will run in parallel. When applying for a job, you will be automatically directed to the appropriate system.

You can learn how to apply, create your Profile and submit your application online at the above link.

Locally recruited positions

Jobs in the General Service and related categories, including those in the trades and crafts, security and safety, secretarial and other support positions, are recruited locally. Please contact the local office of the United Nations in your country directly. At Headquarters in New York, applicants wishing to submit their application for local employment are encouraged to register online at: http://careers.un.org and create a Personal History Profile (PHP).

Job Opportunities in the UN system

If you are interested in working for other United Nations agencies, funds and programmes, please visit their websites directly. Most websites can be accessed through the links found at the International Civil Service Commission.

Warning to Applicants

There are job advertisements and offers that falsely state that they are from the United Nations. Please be aware that the United Nations does not request payment at any stage of the application and review process.
