Wondering what is a GJO?

To fill some of its vacancies, the UN Secretariat uses a system of roster selection to speed up the recruitment process.

A roster is a pool of candidates who have already been vetted as viable candidates through the application process and who are ready for immediate selection, without having to undergo the entire application process. A roster is valid for a specific level and occupational group, for instance, Economic Affairs Officer at the P-3 level.

To populate those rosters, Generic Job Openings are regularly advertised. When an applicant succeeds through this process, their profile is added to the roster.
