Department of Peace Operations (DPO) vid FN:s högkvarter i New York, lyser ut lediga tjänster 1 – 2 gånger om året. Samtliga FNs medlemsländer (ca 190 stycken) är inbjudna att nominera personal till samtliga tjänster i en gemensam rekryteringsprocess.
Försvarsmakten genomför ett urval och sammanhåller Försvarsmaktens nominering till FN. FN tar, efter en egen rekryteringsprocess, det slutgiltiga beslutet om vilket land/person som erbjuds tjänsten.
En tjänstgöring vid FN:s högkvarter i New York innebär att man är tjänstledig från Försvarsmakten och anställd av FN med de förmåner och villkor som de erbjuder. En tjänstgöring är normalt två år men kan förlängas med ett år. Notera att deployering till missionsområde på upp till 90 dagar kan förekomma.
FN:s rekryteringsprocess genomförs genom att de först kontrollerar vilka kandidater som uppfyller den grundläggande kravprofilen avseende bl a nivå, språk, relevant utbildning/examen och yrkeserfarenhet, tidigare insats- och/eller FN-erfarenhet. Sedan väljer de ut en kortlista (short-list) på de kandidater de finner matchar deras kravprofil bäst och de kan bli föremål för kunskapsprov samt en telefon och/eller videointervju (VTC) i enlighet med metoden för kompetensbaserad intervju. Från ansökan till tillträde brukar det ta ca ett år. Övriga kandidater på kortlistan som FN ej erbjuder tjänst men finner intressanta kan hamna i ett register under ett år och eventuellt senare komma att erbjudas motsvarande befattning.
Försvarsmakten har ingen insyn i FN:s uttagningsprocess. Som kandidat till en eller flera av tjänsterna bör man förbereda sig på att processen kan ta flera månader utan insyn i processen.
