Working for the UN
The UN offers a wide range of opportunities from internships, junior professional officers, and a variety of contracts of shorter or longer duration around the world. There are several entry-points for an international career or for combining a career in Denmark with doing international work for a UN organization.
Get answers to which competences are looked for, which forms of employment are offered, whether there are country quotas, what to do, what are the chances for getting through, and a lot more.
Regardless of employment form and duty station, the UN organizations offer numerous opportunities for working with colleagues from different cultures and disciplines. Including all forms of employment, the UN system organizations employs tens of thousands people from nearly 200 different countries.
The meeting takes place in the UN City in Nordhavn – a home for 11 UN organizations: one with a global headquarters, one with a regional headquarters, and the rest with larger or smaller operations (http://un.dk/about-un-city). There will be a chance to meet them all. For a detailed programme, kindly see the uploaded pdf file.
The meeting is arranged in collaboration with DJØF, Yngre Læger and UN City Copenhagen. From an IDA perspective the target audience is all IDA members and members of IDA technical networks who have an interest in working internationally – regardless of whether the interest is general development, a particular technical field, or long or short term.
Participation is free of charge – however, it requires registration at the latest by 12:00 on the 6th of September. Due to security measures people who are not registered will not be allowed to enter the building.
