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.

There are also security positions in U.N. offices at Geneva and New York. They are graded as P (professional) positions, which means that a university or Master degree is required. Check them out:

Hi, Mr. Deepak. Almost all security positions require previous international experience. Therefore if you have only national experience, I will be honest with you, it will be MUCH harder.
