I found an interesting job, can I send my CV and application directly to you?

No, we do not handle any applications or CV’s yet. You will soon be able to create a complete profile searchable for potential hiring organizations. All applications shall be sent directly to the organization that you are interested in. We only provide updated information about vacancies.

Why can I not see all countries in the scroll list in the Search Jobs section?

You can only see the countries where there are current vacancies, so if you cannot find a specific country, that means that there are no vacancies in that country right now.

Is UNjobfinder a UN organization?

No, we are an independent organization not affiliated to the United Nations, but to develop our services we have worked closely with HR professionals with previous expertise both from the UN system and International organizations. We also work in close partnership with many United Nations organizations. Read more about us here.
