The application is used to evaluate your eligibility and suitability for the job. It is your opportunity to tell your story in a way that demonstrates that you are the best candidate for the job.

If you want to apply for more than one job you can update and change your information in the online recruitment system before submitting a new application.


Filling the Languages section of the application

Applicants should indicate their proficiency level for the languages specified in the job opening including their mother tongue. Applicants will not be considered for job openings if they do not indicate proficiency in the required languages. Generally, fluency in either English or French, the two working languages of the United Nations Secretariat, is required for any job openings.


To be considered fluent in a language, the proficiency level in all four specified areas (i.e. reading, speaking, understanding and writing) must be “fluent.” To be considered to have knowledge in a language, the proficiency level in at least two out of the four specified areas must be “confident” or “fluent.”
