Junior professionals (P1/P2) and professionals (P3) are recruited through National Competitive Recruitment Examinations. The examinations are organized as a matter of priority in countries that are inadequately represented among the staff of the Secretariat. The examinations are administered in a number of occupational groups, including administration, economics, electronic data processing, finance, legal affairs, library, political affairs, public information, social development, and statistics. In order to qualify for P1/P2 positions, a candidate must possess a first level university degree and be 32 years of age or younger.

Fluency in either English or French is required for both P1/P2s and P3s. All those who meet these criteria and believe in the purposes and ideals of the United Nations are encouraged to apply.
