    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in New York, New York State

    Generous benefits for staff, especially international hires. Consultants have less benefits and a less predictable life-span at the UN in general. So, what do you get when you join, assuming you are hired from outside of the US? Example is for a P-4 Staff member with 3 dependents starting out in NYC: Family move: $18,000 Installation grant, which is a month's salary up-front. $11,216 Funds to accommodate your first 30 days in NYC (Hotel or temp quarters- no receipts required): $32,250 Education grant, home leave every 2 years (cash, so you generally end up with vacay money too). Good annual leave allowance: 30 days per yer from the first year. Pension fund is almost unheard of: employee contributes 7.9 percent of their salary, the UN matches that, twice fold. US citizens get their taxes (both federal and state) paid for them.

    The UN conditions of service for staff members is generally predictable in most parts of the world and available to view online. The package will include a tax free base salary, plus post-adjustment connected to the location. In addition, depending on the type of contract and location, there may be additional allowances, such as rental subsidy, education allowances, hazard pay. Generally 6 weeks of leave are provided.
