Nominations for OSCE High Commissioner on National Minorities

The UK is open to applications from UK nationals for nominations to the role of OSCE High Commissioner on National Minorities.

The UK is considering nominating a candidate as OSCE High Commissioner on National Minorities (HCNM), which will fall vacant in August 2016. We are open to applications from UK nationals with senior political, international affairs or other directly relevant experience, an understanding of conflict issues, good mediation skills on sensitive issues, a willingness to work behind the scenes, and experience of managing an organisation.

If you are interested you should contact the UK Delegation to the OSCE in Vienna by 17.00 BST on 5 July 2016.

Details on the work of the High Commissioner on National Minorities can be found on the HCNM OSCE web pages. The HCNM is based in The Hague, but the role will involve significant international travel. This is a full time position and a salary will be paid by the OSCE.

Candidates interested in other senior appointments in the OSCE or other international organisations should register their details on the senior appointments register on the Working for international organisations page.
