Honoring those who serve

Today, May 29th, marks the International Day of United Nations Peacekeepers. And the Little Peacekeeper is honoring those who serve. On the picture you can see the Little Peacekeeper in the lobby of the UN building standing in silence, remembering those who have fallen in the cause of peace. The official UN Peacekeeping website has more information about the international day of the Peacekeeper: http://www.un.org/en/peacekeeping/operations/pkday.shtml

The Little Peacekeeper on the Viking 11 Exercise

The Little Peacekeeper has been taken along by a good friend onto the Viking 11 Exercise. To learn about the Exercise, have a look here: http://unjl.org/viking11.

A principal objective of Viking 11 was to provide the opportunity to acquire hands-on practical skills and knowledge of civil-military-police coordination and cooperation during a multifunctional and multinational UN mandated Peace Operations. The Little Peacekeeper met many very interesting friends and colleagues in the exercise. On the pictures you can see the Little Peacekeeper with the UNAMIB Military Liaison Officers and the DSRSG/RC/HC.

Reliefweb jobs added to the UN Job List

If you don’t know Reliefweb I suggest you take a moment, head over to their page and check them out: ReliefWeb is a great resource for everything humanitarian. Aside from maps, reports and a whole universe of other resources ReliefWeb carries a lot of humanitarian jobs. And as of today the UN Job List will start listing an increasing number of these jobs, too. Since there are many more NGOs and other organisations on ReliefWeb, this is how it works:

  1. Over the next days I will add UN organisations from ReliefWeb
  2. All jobs from Reliefweb will be marked (via Reliefweb) so you can easily distinguish them from the regular vacancies
  3. Since some organisations upload their regular jobs via their own vacancy page and then one more time on Reliefweb, there may be duplicates. Please excuse this inconvenience

Note, that ReliefWeb carries a lot of jobs also from NGOs and other non-UN organisations. The UN Job List focusses on UN Jobs only and thus there will be only ReliefWeb vacancies from UN organisations listed on the UN Job List

Please let me know in the comments what you think of this addition and if you have any other suggestions on how to improve the UN Job List.
