Are the "Spotlight Jobs" for real?

Post by FromKadugli » 08 Sep 2018, 07:04

Hey all,

I noted the Spotlight jobs on the UN Job List. Can you help me understand? What makes a spotlight job a spotlight job? And who is deciding this?

Thanks!

Sebastian

Yes, these jobs are for real: I have UN organizations contact me being desperate for finding great applicants. So spotlight jobs are vacancies where there is no ready internal talent available.

Right now, UNOPS has a few spotlight jobs:

I'm Sebastian from the UN Job List. I know about the UN Job List and also a little about the UN in general.

Ah - ok, thanks a lot. So what you are telling me is that these jobs don't have internal candidates waiting to get a promotion?
