UN staff can soon seek jobs in Ban Ki-moon’s office as part of push for more mobility

19 January 2007

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon announced plans today to circulate advertisements within the United Nations system for a dozen positions in his own office as part of his broader campaign to encourage staff mobility.

Staff will have 10 days to express their interest for any of the positions, which range in seniority from the lowest professional rank to the grade immediately below Assistant Secretary-General, once they are advertised, Mr. Ban’s spokesperson Michele Montas said.

In a letter to staff, to be published on the UN’s internal web portal, Mr. Ban said “as I undertake these efforts to lead by example, I look to all senior managers to follow suit and promote mobility among their staff, beyond the requirements of managed mobility.”
