Important information

All job openings in the UN Secretariat are published on the United Nations Careers Portal. When you apply for a job, you must submit an application in the UN online recruitment system called Inspira.

The Inspira application is an extended online resume called Personal History profile (PHP), specifically used by the United Nations Secretariat, where you articulate your education, professional experience and language skills. The application is used to evaluate your eligibility and suitability for the job. Applications received after the closing date are not accepted. Only candidates under serious consideration are contacted.

Fake employment offers for the United Nations and in particular for the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR) are currently circulating.

If you are approached with an employment offer, please check that the vacancy is advertised on

Please also note that the United Nations does not charge a fee at any stage of the recruitment process (application, interview meeting, processing or training).
