How to Apply to Field Mission vacancies:

All applicants are strongly encouraged to apply online.

Online applications will be immediately acknowledged when an email address has been provided. If you do not receive an e-mail acknowledgment within 24 hours of submission, your application may not have been received. In such cases, please go to “My UN” page and check the status of your application by clicking on “view application history”, and resubmit the application, if necessary. Should you have any technical difficulties, please contact estaffing@un.org.


When you receive an automatic notification, there is no need to submit another application on-line or by other means for the same vacancy.
  1. To start the application process, applicants must open a “MY UN” account. Go to Log-in, and Register as a User. Fill in the form and choose a User Name and Password.

  2. Once you are registered on-line, complete and save your Personal History Profile (PHP).

  3. In completing the PHP, please note that all fields marked with an asterisk must be completed. Additionally, you are encouraged to fill all of the fields to best convey your personal ambitions.

  4. Applicants may apply for generic and/or specific vacancies using the saved PHP. The PHP may be up-dated when necessary.
You can apply to field missions by applying to a generic (multiple duty station M/S) vacancy announcement. Current field mission openings can be viewed. You are also given an opportunity to express your preference for current missions in which you would be particularly interested in serving. While this may not constitute a direct application for a post, it will assist us in taking into account your own aspirations.

The generic vacancy announcements are used to generate candidates for the roster. While preferences will be registered and taken into account, qualified individuals willing to serve in several/all locations will, of course, have a greater possibility of serving.

Your application will be screened and evaluated against the requirements set out in the vacancy announcement. If you meet the requirements of the vacancy announcements your application will be included in a roster system that will be submitted for all vacancies in your occupational group and grade for field missions of your choice. Your application will remain valid in the roster for a period of 12 months. Should you wish to remain in the roster after the initial 12 months, please update and resubmit your PHP.

You can also apply for a post-specific vacancy announcement. You will be evaluated against the requirements as specified in the particular vacancy and your name may be put forward for that specific announcement only. Your application will not be placed in the roster unless you apply to a generic (multiple duty stations M/S) vacancy announcement.

In view of the high volume of applications received, only those applicants who are included in the roster will be notified.
