Apply Now: The 2024 Global Call Campaign

The Secretary-General’s Global Call for nominations seeks to expand and diversify the pool of Special Representatives of the Secretary-General (SRSGs), Deputy Special Representatives of the Secretary-General (DSRSGs), and Special Envoys in United Nations Peacekeeping Operations and Special Political Missions.

The Secretary-General is searching for exceptional leaders who have the expertise, competencies, skills, values and behaviours to lead the United Nation’s complex missions in the field.

The Global Call, previously held in 2021, 2019 and 2017, aims to advance gender parity and geographical diversity at the most senior level in United Nations field missions.

The campaign will remain open for nominations/applications until 15 July 2024. Member States, regional, international and non-governmental organizations and individuals are encouraged to submit nominations/applications.

Entities are asked to submit a “parity+ list” of up to four nominees including an equal or higher number of women. In the spirit of enhancing geographical diversity, Member States can nominate an additional candidate from an underrepresented region (of a different nationality). Self-nominations are also accepted.

Following an internal review process, candidates who meet the minimum requirements will be included in the SRSG/DSRSG/Special Envoy pool.

Only those found suitable for specific posts, as and when vacancies arise, will be invited to participate in a competitive selection process.

If you have any questions, please visit the FAQ section and/or contact the Leadership Support Section in the Departments of Political and Peacebuilding Affairs and Peace Operations at leadership@un.org.
