Working in a peacekeeping operation provides an opportunity to be part of an international effort to better the lives of the people it aims to serve. It is a very demanding, dynamic, rewarding and often life-changing experience.
The scope and variety of skills and occupational fields which are required by the United Nations have expanded over the last decade. Early peacekeeping operations were mainly in support of peace-monitoring mandates. In the last decade, peacekeeping operations have undergone a dramatic change. A range of new activities, including civilian administration, political affairs, humanitarian relief, human rights, and legal and judicial affairs have been introduced, greatly expanding the occupational fields which the Department of Peacekeeping Operations must now staff.
