Fake vacancy announcements have been repeatedly circulated in the name of the United Nations via non-UN websites and email imitating UN email addresses. In some cases, correspondence falsely signed in the name of real UN officials has ensued, asking would-be applicants to part with copies of personal documents and even money.

As part of the UN Secretariat, UN-DESA posts job vacancies only at and, in the cases of temporary vacancy announcements, on the UN Secretariat intranet site iSeek. Please disregard any emails, or non-UN websites, purporting to announce UN-DESA job vacancies, and pass on this warning to anyone you think may be affected.
