Hey guys,

For those we got recruiter or were in the process, can you share your timelines here? I think that will be very helpful for many of us.
Thanks

Hi.
Thanks for all the information. Very helpful when going through the recruitment process. I'd like to add that sometimes the status of on the UNOPS website may not necessarily reflect the current status. I've gotten a contract for an engineer retainer role and the status still says Application status longlisted - Vacancy status shortlisting. I'll give timeline of my recruitment and what the status has said all along.

I applied March 5th and the closing date was March 5th.
March 6. Application Status: Applied - Vacancy Status: Under Review

On March 21st received an invitation for written technical assessment - 3 hours for March 24th
Status still at Application Status: Applied - Vacancy Status: Under Review

March 31st - Status change on webiste
Application Status: Longlisted - Vacancy Status: Shorlisting

April 6th received interview request for April 8th. Panel interview on google hangouts. Did interview on 8th
Status still at Application Status: Longlisted - Vacancy Status: Shortlisting

April 9th received request for references and ID. My references were contacted on the same day.
Status still at Application Status: Longlisted - Vacancy Status: Shortlisting

April 14th received informal offer saying contract would be issued pending finish reference check and academic check. Tentative start date of 20th April
Status still at Application Status: Longlisted - Vacancy Status: Shortlisting

April 23rd received contract and sent it back
Status still at Application Status: Longlisted - Vacancy Status: Shortlisting

Moral of story is the status on the website does not necessarily reflect what the current status is. The position I interviewed for was also fast-tracked because of the current COVID situation and may seem fast compared to others. It was also a reposted position. It's a LICA-9 retainer position
