Staff Grade



Staff positions are grouped in two broad categories of occupations (the Professional and higher categories and the General Service category) and the hierarchy is expressed by grade levels within those categories.  The grade level of each position  is established based on the nature of duties and responsibilities assigned to it and the related skills, knowledge and experience required.

National professional officers are recruited locally to perform work that typically requires knowledge of the local laws, culture and tradition.  Positions in this category are classified against the same classification standards applied to positions in the Professional and higher categories, and are subject to the same recruitment criteria for positions in the Professional category.

Selected Filters



Positions are classified according to the classification standards developed by the International Civil Service Commission (ICSC). Positions in the Professional and higher categories entail work that are analytical, evaluative and conceptual duties, and typically require an advanced university degree (Master’s degree or equivalent) and relevant work experience. Work in the General Service category is procedural, operational or technical in nature and supports the execution of programmes. General Service positions require a minimum of secondary education and relevant work experience.
