VACANCY- United Nations Opens Application Portal For 120,000 Job Openings For Africans (Graduates and Non-Graduates)

The United Nations UN is an international organization founded in 1945 and committed to maintaining international peace and security; developing friendly relations among nations; promoting social progress, better living standards and human rights.

Career support
From the moment you join the United Nations’ dynamic team of staff members, you can be certain of one thing – our support system will ensure that you are not left alone to figure out your career. The development of every staff member is very important to us – helping you to grow helps us to become better at what we do. We are therefore committed to providing all the available tools to respond to your needs.

Pay and benefits
The United Nations offers you an attractive remuneration package with competitive pay and benefits. The level of pay for staff in the Professional and higher categories that are recruited internationally is set by reference to the highest paying national civil service. Staff members in categories that are locally recruited are compensated in accordance with the best prevailing conditions of service locally.

Staff members in these categories are normally recruited and paid on a local basis. You will be paid a salary according to a local salary scale. Salary scales are reviewed periodically on the basis of comprehensive surveys of the best prevailing conditions of employment in the locality.

Tax exemption
Salaries, grants and allowances paid by the United Nations are normally exempt from income tax.

Allowances and benefits
You may be entitled to other allowances and benefits including: Family allowances if you have eligible children in school; and in some locations if you have an eligible dependent spouse.

Holidays and leave
Depending on your contract, you will be entitled to 18 days to 30 days of vacation per year. In addition, the United Nations also observes 10 paid holidays per year; these differ from duty station to duty station.

Health insurance
You will be eligible to participate in one of the United Nations-sponsored medical insurance plans. The monthly premiums are co-shared by yourself and the Organization.

Retirement pension
If you have an appointment of six months or more or complete six months of service without an interruption you become a participant in the United Nations Joint Staff Pension Fund. A compulsory contribution will be deducted from your monthly salary.

Submitting a job application
If you want to apply for a specific job after you have filled out your application, you click Add job to application. Depending on the job you are applying to you may get a set of questions, which are yes/no, true/false or multiple choice questions. Similarly, depending on the position, you may be prompted with a list of skills and be asked to perform a self-assessment on these, giving an indication of your level of proficiency for each skill listed. Your responses will be used in the evaluation and assessment of your candidature.

After the job application is complete, you submit your application by clicking Apply.

The United Nations does not accept a resume as an attached document and it is neither considered a substitute nor a complementary document to a completed online application. If any additional information or documentation is required, you will be requested to submit it in the course of the application process.

If you have submitted your job application successfully, you will promptly receive an automated acknowledgment by e-mail. Also note that once an application has been submitted it cannot be changed for that specific job opening.

Each application you have prepared, and the list of job openings to which you have applied, along with the application status, is displayed in the My Career Tools page, which can be found in your Careers Home page. All applications you have submitted are listed under My Applications page with the appropriate status i.e. “Applied”, “Under consideration”, “Rostered” etc.

How do I apply for a job?

All job openings in the UN Secretariat are published on the Applicvation Portal. When you apply for a job, you have to submit an application in the UN online recruitment system.

For information on how to apply for a job using the new online recruitment system, go to Application Process.
