Field Service (FS)
at the United Nations
Staff in the Field Service category are normally recruited internationally to serve in field missions. You are expected to be highly mobile and to serve in different locations during your career.
Field Service staff members provide administrative, technical, logistics and other support services to United Nations field missions. You are required to have as a minimum a High School diploma or equivalent; some positions may require a technical or vocational certificate.
There are four levels of the field service category: FS-4 through FS-7. As you acquire more relevant work experience you can progressively apply for higher positions.
|Mid-level Field Service||Senior level Field Service|
|FS-4||minimum 6 years work experience||FS-6*||minimum 10 years work experience|
|FS-5||minimum 8 years work experience||FS-7*||minimum 12 years work experience|
* The minimum number of years of relevant experience is reduced for candidates who possess a first-level university degree; for FS-6 a minimum of 5 years of experience is needed and for FS-7 a minimum of 7 years of experience is needed.
