UN Security Officer vacancies - November 2015

Today I would like to share with you the United Nations vacancies in the Security Field. These positions usually are filled by former military or police officers. Women are always specially encouraged to apply.

By 1st of November we have 14 positions in the security field. Some of them are FS (field service) positions, and former/current UNPOLs usually match perfectly these vacancies, because they require previous international experience.
Also, for F positions, a high school diploma or equivalent technical or vocational certificate is enough by academic side.

5 mistakes you make when applying to United Nations jobs (#2 is very common)

1) You don’t read the requirements

People from all around the world are applying to the same position as you. If you don’t save some time to read all the job description, someone else will do. And your competitor will highlight
in his/her curriculum vitae exactly what the mission needs from him/her. Guess who will be shortlisted?

Some U.N. positions have a very high level of specialization required, and you may have it. But no recruiter in the world will be able to figure it out if you don’t explicitly show them your level of expertise.
