How to Apply to Field Mission vacancies:

The electronic system will guide you through the process of applying for vacancies in United Nations Peace Operations. If you are interested in an overview of the process, or want to revisit certain key functionality, please continue.

All applicants are strongly encouraged to apply on line.

Online applications will be immediately acknowledged when an email address has been provided. If you do not receive an e-acknowledgement with 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.

In order to apply to a vacancy, you need to be registered in Galaxy and to have completed a Personal History Profile (PHP).

  1. To start the online registration process, CLICK here.
  2. Go to Log-in, and Register as a User. Fill in the form and choose a User Name and Password.
  3. Once you are registered on-line, complete and save your Personal History Profile (PHP).
  4. In completing the PHP, please note that all fields marked with an asterisk must be completed. Additionally, you are encouraged to fill in all relevant information required for a proper review of your profile.
  5. You may apply for all vacancies using the saved PHP. This PHP may be up-dated when necessary.

Your application will be screened and evaluated against the requirements set out in the vacancy announcement. In the event that you successfully complete the preliminary screening process, you will be contacted to further discuss your interest in working with UN peace operations. The next step would be consideration and interview for specific positions.

Because of the high volume of applications received, the screening process can take several months, so please do not become discouraged. Please know that your application to a generic vacancy announcement for a specific occupational group and your expression of interest in serving in specific locations or missions will enable you to be considered for all positions for which you are qualified. Your application to a generic vacancy announcement will remain valid for one year. You need not reapply within that period.

Should you not be able to submit your application on-line, please fax your PHP to the following number with a clear indication of the vacancy number to which you are applying: +1-212-963-2800.

UN staff members do not need to submit a Performance Appraisal System (PAS) reports at the time of application. The PAS will be requested from the staff member in case it is required.

Please see the Frequently Asked Questions, if you encounter problems when applying.
