Advisor at the Permanent Mission of Ireland to the United Nations, New York

Temporary Advisor Posts at the Permanent Mission of Ireland to the United Nations, New York

Applications are invited for temporary, full-time Advisor positions at the Permanent Mission of Ireland to the United Nations in New York, during the main session of the 71st UN General Assembly (UNGA).

The positions will commence in late August/early September 2016 and will be for a period of 12-15 weeks.

The successful candidates will be tasked with supporting the Mission’s increased workload in the run up to and during the 71st General Assembly. This will entail working closely with diplomatic staff on a specific portfolio, which could include the activities of one of the six committees of the UN General Assembly or the UN Security Council.

Each Temporary Advisor, with the guidance and oversight of a supervisor from among the full-time diplomatic staff, will be tasked with supporting, and sometimes leading, close engagement with Dublin on issues of  policy, and the promotion of policy priorities in intergovernmental fora, including negotiations of resolutions and substantive coordination sessions among EU Member States.

The team of Temporary Advisors will also be requested to follow the annual General Debate of the UN General Assembly, subsequently working as a team to efficiently and expeditiously develop a summary report, which will highlight areas of priority for Ireland.

Finally, successful candidates will be called upon to support other activities as they arise, including by assisting in the organisation of events hosted by Ireland and providing logistical support to visiting high-level delegations. 

The closing date for applications is Thursday 2 June 2016
