    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.

    Applicants are urged to follow carefully all instructions available in the online recruitment platform, inspira. For more detailed guidance, applicants may refer to the Manual for the Applicant, which can be accessed by clicking on “Manuals” hyper-link on the upper right side of the inspira account-holder homepage.

    The evaluation of applicants will be conducted on the basis of the information submitted in the application according to the evaluation criteria of the job opening and the applicable internal legislations of the United Nations including the Charter of the United Nations, resolutions of the General Assembly, the Staff Regulations and Rules, administrative issuances and guidelines. Applicants must provide complete and accurate information pertaining to their personal profile and qualifications according to the instructions provided in inspira to be considered for the current job opening. No amendment, addition, deletion, revision or modification shall be made to applications that have been submitted. Candidates under serious consideration for selection will be subject to reference checks to verify the information provided in the application.

    integrity. Candidates will not be considered for employment with the

    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
