Hi,
I’ve been looking at the UN site and found there are tons of employment opportunities, ranging from admin to finance to security. Some of them look pretty interesting and relevant to what I’m about to do in uni.

Here's the link: https://jobs.un.org/Galaxy/Release3/...y/vacancy.aspx

What do you think of the prospects by heading towards that direction? Is it worth it and does anyone have any experience in this field?

Thanks!

NATO run a summer internship for students I believe, as well as gap year programs. Might be worth checking that out too while you're still studying.

The UN likes to have a representative workforce so getting a job in the UN set up is actually quite difficult as a British citizen. I would suggest (as was suggested to me) that you look at UK and EU civil service first and move into the UN that way (it seems to be more popular), unless of course you are going for a particular research position, etc.

Actually I'm Australian so going into NATO would prove to be difficult if not impossible!

So I should go through civil service even for positions that are offered at the "normal" job market (i.e admin, HR, finance,etc)?
