All assistant positions in United Nations - November 2015

Want to start an international career at United Nations but you don't have a University or Master degree? Your choice would be starting as an assistant.

After joining United Nations staff family you can continue your studies and then try the G (general staff) to P (professional), or F (field service) to P transitions.

The assistant positions

In United Nations recruitment system the G positions, or general staff, have lower level of responsibility compared to Professional staff and Directors.
They start at G-1 (lower level of experience) and go up to G-7 (highest level of previous experience needed). Usually, a secondary (high school or technical) diploma is enough by the education side.

The exception for this grade sequence is the World Bank Group. They don't follow the same sequence as U.N. Their assistant positions goes from GA to GC.

Also, assistant positions in United Nations are ALWAYS LOCALLY RECRUITED, which means you should already live in the duty station you are willing to work on. (or nearby)
