As of 22 April 2010, all job openings in the UN Secretariat are published on the
United Nations Careers Portal (careers.un.org), available also in French.

The United Nations Secretariat is transitioning to a new online recruitment system. During this transition period, both the existing and the new system will run in parallel. When applying for a job, you will be automatically directed to the appropriate system.

Galaxy is used for openings in Field Missions (peacekeeping and special political missions) as well as Job Openings in the rest of the Secretariat that were posted prior to 22 April. The jobs posted in Galaxy are also published on the United Nations Careers Portal (careers.un.org).
