Here is the announcement we just received from our wonderful colleague Marcela Jenney-Reyes. We thought we'd spread the word!
We are pleased to announce that competitive examinations for the recruitment of Spanish-language associate translators/précis writers and associate verbatim reporters are scheduled to be held on 17 and 18 September 2012, respectively.
The purpose of the examinations is to establish rosters from which present and future vacancies for Spanish-language associate translators/précis writers and associate verbatim reporters at the United Nations Headquarters in New York and other duty stations will be filled.
Further information regarding the examinations, including eligibility requirements and online application forms, can be found on the United Nations web site:
The deadline for submission of applications is 21 July 2012.
