Police

Peacekeeping wants to recruit more police officers.  Find out how to serve in one of our missions.

Military

The UN does not have its own military force; it depends on contributions from Member States. Any queries about working for the UN in a military capacity should be addressed within an applicants own country first.

All military personnel working under the Blue Beret are first and foremost members of their own national armies and are then seconded to work with the UN for periods normally of up to one year in the field, or two years in the UN headquarters.
