UN Security Vacancies - August 2015

security officer badge

Today I would like to share with you the Security Field opened job positions within United Nations.

All the positions advertised here are related to Security Field. Candidates who usually got these kind of positions in United Nations have previous experience in Police, Law Enforcement Agencies and Military Personnel.

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 amongst candidates, and the values are not clearly specified in Inspira.

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.
vien28g.xls - General Service salaries of staff based on Vienna.

In my humble opinion, the information should not be spread through three different websites and in lots of different documents. My suggestion is that U.N. could organize this a little better, so it could be easier for people to fetch information.

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. Salary may increase due to family, children and career progression, for example.

* POST ADJUSTMENT
CALCULATIONS:
The Post Adjustment is given to staff members in the Professional and higher categories and in the Field Service category who are assigned to a duty station for one year or more;

** In United Nations – International Civil Service Commission (ICSC) website, I could not find the post adjustment for Kosovo.

I would like to emphasize that, usually, Professional and higher categories require a Master Degree. In some cases, a university degree and working experience in the area can be used in lieu of the MSc. degree. Another important point is that General Service positions are recruited in a local basis. Hence, U.N. gives preference for those who already have residence in the duty station.

Applications are processed via U.N. Inspira system

You are definitely doing a good job. May you keep up the good work. One question though, what do they mean when they say this vacancy is open to those listed on the rooster? and how can one get his profile listed. lmatinika@yahoo.com

Roster, not rooster :)... It means they will give preference to candidates who were already interviewed and who went through the whole selection process. In this cases, external candidates have less (not to say zero) chance to get the vacancy.

Good day! I could have sworn I've been to this website befoe but after reading through some of the pst I realized it's new to me. Anyways, I'm definitely delighted I found it and I'll be book-marking and checking back frequently!

I am an Ex-UNPOL with UNMIL,with CP3217. I wrote UN test on 5th October 2011 after my Mission. Sometime in March 2013, UN Hq informed me that I passed the test/Exam and that whether I will like to be deployed to Mail in July 2013? I answered in the affirmative. In the same vein, Mail mission then asked me to indicate interest in her mission which I did. Hitherto, I am yet to hear from UN. When will I be deployed since I am already on staff contact list sir? Best regards, Akintola Oyakhire.
