appointment is limited to the International Residual Mechanism for
Criminal Tribunals. Appointment of the successful candidate on this
position will be limited to the initial funding of the post. Extension
of the appointment is subject to the extension of the mandate and/or the
availability of funds. As the international tribunals are not
integrated in the Secretariat, UN Staff Members serve on assignment or
secondment from their parent department/office if selected. Appointments
of staff members in the United Nations are subject to the authority of
the Secretary-General. Staff Members are expected to move periodically
to new functions in accordance with established rules and procedures,

United Nations Considerations
According to article 101, paragraph 3, of the Charter of the United
Nations, the paramount consideration in the employment of the staff is
the necessity of securing the highest standards of efficiency,
competence, and integrity. Candidates will not be considered for
employment with the United Nations if they have committed violations of
international human rights law, violations of international humanitarian
law, sexual exploitation, sexual abuse, or sexual harassment, or if
there are reasonable grounds to believe that they have been involved in
the commission of any of these acts. The term “sexual exploitation”
means any actual or attempted abuse of a position of vulnerability,
differential power, or trust, for sexual purposes, including, but not
limited to, profiting monetarily, socially or politically from the
sexual exploitation of another. The term “sexual abuse” means the actual
or threatened physical intrusion of a sexual nature, whether by force
or under unequal or coercive conditions. The term “sexual harassment”
means any unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature that might reasonably be
expected or be perceived to cause offence or humiliation, when such
conduct interferes with work, is made a condition of employment or
creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive work environment, and when
the gravity of the conduct warrants the termination of the
perpetrator’s working relationship. Candidates who have committed crimes
other than minor traffic offences may not be considered for employment.

Due
regard will be paid to the importance of recruiting the staff on as
wide a geographical basis as possible. The United Nations places no
restrictions on the eligibility of men and women to participate in any
capacity and under conditions of equality in its principal and
subsidiary organs. The United Nations Secretariat is a non-smoking
environment.

The paramount consideration in the appointment,
transfer, or promotion of staff shall be the necessity of securing the
highest standards of efficiency, competence, and integrity. By accepting
an offer of appointment, United Nations staff members are subject to
the authority of the Secretary-General and assignment by him or her to
any activities or offices of the United Nations in accordance with staff
regulation 1.2 (c). In this context, all internationally recruited
staff members shall be required to move periodically to discharge new
functions within or across duty stations under conditions established by
the Secretary-General.
