Questions about temporary appointment
Posted: 11 Feb 2019, 15:47
I'm about to take up a temporary appointment, but there's so much information (I was sent over a dozen attachments), it's a little overwhelming. Perhaps some kind folk could clarify a few things for me.
- I have to get medical clearance, and the rules state:
My physician is in the public sector, but they don't do fit for work certificates, so I have to go private. Does it have to be issued by my doctor, as suggested by the UN's wording, or can I use a private doctor?Certificates of good health shall be issued by the physician of the candidate selected for appointment.
I must secure health insurance that is
I assume the European health card wouldn't be equivalent to the UN coverage? Would you recommend signing up to the UN's Vanbreda short-term plan for temporary staff? Or should I look at other options?generally equivalent to UN coverage during the period of your temporary appointment, and provide a copy of the insurance card.
Any thoughts on whether to join CPIT pension scheme for translators?
