  1. Thomas do you know the salary range for this position and what the % division between actual ombuds work vs. management functions?

    1. I'm sorry to say that I don't. I made some efforts to locate answers, but had no luck.

    2. Searching on the UN jobs website, the job does not seem to be active. Do you find the same thing?

    3. The link still works for me: https://careers.un.org/lbw/jobdetail.aspx?id=53578

  2. Yes it does! Funny, the direct link works but the search function on the UN HR recruiting site does not bring up the job. Thanks.
