    Please Consider this very urgent I have been offered a letter of appointment from UNICEF but they are asking me to resign from my current government employment. I can take unpaid leave and they said it is accepted then said no I have to resign. Iam 45 if I resign all my entitlements with the government will be lost. I do not know why I should resign when I can take unpaid leave from government and is there a rule that says so. Please I hope you can answer this question very soon. my email is [email removed by admin – pls. don’t post emails here!]

    Hey Kassemanwar,
    First and foremost congratulations for making that far. This are stories that give me hope to continue applying for UN. Personally I work with the government in my home country. If the job offer is permanent you should take it and resign from your current job. You should calculate the benefits viz-a-viz the exposure you will get. The benefit which I will get after working with my home government for 27 years is equal to UN two years pay. You should not be afraid for the unknown……

    it is an annual contract renewed depending on evaluation and availability of funding. Is there a permanent contract I do not believe there is such contracts in UN.

    I would ask them about the specifics. Typically you can’t be serving your government and the UN at the same time. That would be a conflict of interest. However, ask if you can take a leave of absence from your current job. I personally would not leave a pension arrangement etc. for a 1 year contract at the age of 45.
