To be considered, applicants must meet or exceed the minimum selection criteria for the advertised position.

    Please follow these guidelines when applying:

    • If you consider yourself to be qualified, please send a completed UNU Personal History form (required) and your curriculum vitae (optional).
    • When submitting your application, make sure you clearly indicate the position reference number in your cover letter.
    • For further tips on what to include in a cover letter, see the Office of Human Resources Management website of the United Nations.
    • Send your application by post, fax or e-mail (as specified in the vacancy announcement).

    Due to the high volume of employment-related correspondence that we receive daily, UNU unfortunately cannot acknowledge receipt of your application nor respond to queries regarding information that is already provided in the vacancy announcement or given in detail on the Employment Information section of this website.

    We will only contact you only if you have been short-listed for an interview.

    Please note: The UNU Personal History (P.11) form has been updated as of April 2020. If you previously downloaded the old form, please discard that and begin using the newer form.
