Interested parties may download the UN call to competitive examinations, to be held in June / July 2008, at: http://www.un.org/Depts/OHRM/examin/exam.htm

You are asked to observe the country restrictions on the left-hand side of the website.

Good luck!

Age limit? Apr 30, 2008

I wonder what the reasoning is behind the age limit.

Non linguistic professions. Apr 30, 2008

Aren't these age and country restrictions for the non-linguistic professions. I've heard (on the grapevine) that the maximum age for linguistic professions is 56 and that those country restrictions do not apply for linguistic professions.

There is no nationality requirement for language positions and the age limit is 56. You have to open the examination notice for info on the age limit.
