Organization Description
The UK Mission, with support from other Government Departments, represents the UK in every negotiation that takes place in New York, ensuring that Britain’s interests and views are taken into account by UN Bodies and the other member states. The UK, as one of the five Permanent Members of the Security Council, plays a key role in all aspects of the Council’s work, providing information from the UK’s diplomatic network, negotiating, and lobbying for appropriate actions and resolutions. The Ambassador and his team engage in a constant round of meetings, promoting British interests and persuading others to accept the UK’s views.

The UK Mission also works to improve the way the UN works. It plays an important part in efforts to reform the Security Council, improve the UN’s finances and strengthen the UN’s capacity to deal with economic and social issues, peacekeeping and conflict prevention. The UK has been at the forefront of efforts to develop practical proposals for reform. The UK Mission works with the UN Secretary-General to promote reforms and ensure that the UN is a leaner, more effective organization – one that will meet the challenges of the twenty-first century.

Job Description
An exciting and challenging opportunity to work at the UK Mission to the United Nations, driving UK policy in the General Assembly of the United Nations at a time when the international community is gearing up to support the new Secretary-General’s ambitious reform agenda. We are recruiting for two positions to support UK engagement with the General Assembly (GA), one leading on policy, liaison and analysis on the GA generally; the other on the Sustainable Development cluster within the GA and Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). You’ll be working for a Government who cares about these issues, whose views are influential and whose thought-leadership is respected.

The successful candidates will join a busy team that leads on the UK’s overall engagement with the General Assembly and ECOSOC, and also focuses specifically on international development, health and climate change at the UN. You will work with policy managers and colleagues across a broad spectrum of British Government departments to develop and deliver UK policy in relation to the UN – either with a focus on successful engagement with the General Assembly broadly, or on delivering UK aims on sustainable development issues and in the Second Committee.

The ideal candidates will have a flexible approach and be strong team players. You will be comfortable managing competing and evolving demands in a fast paced environment, and demonstrate an enthusiasm for making a positive contribution to the workings and culture of the team and wider mission. You will be part of an energetic and friendly team of seven with a strong team ethos and a belief in enabling each other to excel. You will also work with other parts of the mission, and will contribute to setting up Ministerial visits to the UN, putting on events and coordinating activity across the team and wider Mission. There will likely be some travel opportunities, including to London to meet with UK Government policy leads.

With the right tools, we can root out and eradicate modern slavery to create a world where all people are free.
