FN New York - Planning Officer, Force Generation Service OF-4

Om tjänsten

Försvarsmakten skall nominera kandidater till militära befattningar vid FNs Högkvarter i New York.

Det är fortfarande inte fastställt vilka av de öppna befattningarna som Sverige skall nominera till så vi väljer att göra en bred inhämtning av sökandeunderlag. Endast sökande med rätt grad kan komma ifråga för nominering.

Efter en eventuell nominering så sker uttagningen helt i FNs regi, en process som de enskilda medlemsstaterna saknar insyn i.

Vid en eventuell uttagning så anställs arbetstagaren direkt av FN och är följaktligen tjänstledig från Försvarsmakten under den perioden. En anställningsperiod sträcker sig över två år men det är vanligt att man efter väl genomförd tjänstgöring erbjuds ett tredje år.

Se nedanstående befattningsbeskrivning för mer information.

Efter sista ansökningsdag tar det upp till fyra månader innan återkoppling till de sökande sker. Därefter genomförs tester samt intervju med de uttagna som kan ta upp till ytterligare tre månader. Tillsättande av tjänster sker ca sju månader efter ansökningsperiodens slut.

Sista ansökningsdag 2019-07-07.

Eventuella frågor om tjänstgöringsvillkor och nomineringsprocess ställs till: Hans Nilsson, HKV STAB Pers Int. hans.g.nilsson@mil.se.
