What is roster recruitment?

Roster/Cluster recruitment is a quite new concept within the UN system. The purpose is to build up a pre-assessed talent supply to meet anticipated future recruitment demands.The difference between applying to ‘single’ traditional position and a roster/cluster recruitment is that when you apply for a roster, you may not know until you get an offer where you will be located and when you will start.

What is unique in the way UNHCR builds their roster is that they recruit several grade levels in the same job announcement. The agency post rosters with both multiple duty stations and multiple grades. What is also characteristic for a roster position is that the posting duration often is longer than a traditional recruitment. Read more about rosters here and here.
