United Nations - Judges of the United Nations Internal Justice System - Jobs in Kenya

The United Nations (UN) is seeking judges for its internal system of administration of justice that addresses employment-related disputes.

The internal justice system includes a first instance United Nations Dispute Tribunal (UNDT) and an appellate instance United Nations Appeals Tribunal (UNAT).

The UNDT sits in New York, Geneva and Nairobi and is comprised of three full-time judges and six half-time judges. The full-time and half-time judges serve for non-renewable seven-year terms.

The UN is presently undertaking a selection process to fill four half-time judicial positions in the UNDT.

Half-time judges work for up to six months in a calendar year in New York, Geneva or Nairobi. Half-time judges may not be deployed in a particular year or may be deployed less than a cumulative period of six months a year if their deployment is not justified by the UNDT’s caseload.

The President of the UNDT decides whether and where to deploy a half-time judge, including whether to make use of telecommuting in their deployment.

Mandatory qualifications for judges of the UNDT:

  • All persons applying to serve as a judge of the UNDT must be of high moral character and impartial.
  • Candidates must have at least 10 years of judicial experience (i.e. experience as a judge or equivalent) in the field of administrative law, or the equivalent (e.g., employment law, law applicable to civil servants, civil litigation) within one or more national jurisdictions.
  • English and French are the working languages of the United Nations.
  • All candidates must be fluent, both orally and in writing, in
    English or French in order to conduct judicial proceedings, and draft decisions or judicial orders in either of the two languages.

    How to Apply
  • Interested candidates are invited to apply by completing the prescribed application form in either English or French.
  • The completed form must be sent by email to internaljusticecouncil-application@un.org to be received by 31st March 2019.
  • Candidates who do not meet the mandatory qualifications set out above or who do not apply using the prescribed form will not be considered.
  • The form must be completed electronically (handwritten forms will not be accepted).
  • Candidates under serious consideration for selection will be subject to reference checks to verify the information provided in the application, invited for a written or other form of assessment and will be interviewed by the Internal Justice Council (IJC), a body established by the General Assembly.
  • The UN is an inclusive work environment and encourages all qualified applicants, irrespective of gender, nationality, disabilities, sexual orientation, and cultural, religious and ethnic backgrounds to apply.
  • Applications from women are strongly encouraged.
