U.N. Administration Jobs

U.N. flag

Paying up to 180,000 USD/year, United Nations job offers cannot be found in regular job websites. Check here the August/2015 list of Administration job posts in United Nations around the world. English or French fluency is a requirement in most of the vacancies.

These job posts usually can be found in U.N. careers portal and in Inspira system. The main difference between Inspira and this listing is that we made an effort and researched for an estimated salary, as we understand payment is a very important decision factor among candidates, and the values are not clearly specified in official websites.

To achieve the values, I used as reference the U.N. Human Resources Portal, the International Civil Service Commission (ICSC) website, the OHRM website, and the following spreadsheets provided by them:

base01-2015.xls - Base salary for Professional and Higher Categories Staff.
fsbase01-2015.xls - Base salary for Field Service.
CIRC PAC#488 - Memorandum about Post Adjustment.
gene51.xls - General Service salaries of staff based on Geneva.
addi46g.xls - General Service salaries of Addis Ababa.
bang45g.xls - General Service salaries for Bangkok.
monl57g.xls - General Service salaries for Montreal.

All these documents are provided by UN and ICSC.

For the calculations, I used the lowest GROSS annual payment for each category. In other words, the salary for a single person in the beginning of his/her career, but without taxes discounted. Salary may also increase due to family, children and career progression, for example.

I have 9 years experience in military trained by US navy seals, army special forces and US marine commandos. My rank was lieutenant. Since I was directly employed by US government and quit my job and I am no longer in contact with because of nature of my job. Can I still apply as peacekeeper? Do I need to prove my rank? But I have letters of recommendations that shows my service and military experience. I Was involved highly dangerous missions with with US special forces for years in different provinces including Kandahar, Helmand etc...

Sure. There are three branches in a peacekeeping mission: civilian, police and military. Since you quit military, you may be considered as a civilian for Security Officer jobs. It may not look like, but all the "security officer" positions are civilian posts. Therefore you have chance. The application should be done in Inspira (http://inspira.un.org). Kind regards.
