In late 2016 Impactpool sent out a survey to former and current United Nations staff members. All candidates had started their UN career at a junior staff position (P1 or P2) during the past 25 years. With this survey, we wanted to find out what successful UN staff members have in common, and we discovered that there is a lot.
We asked staff of the United Nations where they go to find job opportunities. Our focus was women, and our results shows that printed media belongs to the past, organization’s own job site is still attracting important talents. However, one other source grows faster than any other source and is already the largest talent provider of all.
More and more organizations are working strategically to reach gender parity at all levels in their organizations. How has this affected traditional search firms, if at all? The world is changing, but for some reason some things are more diffiucult to change. Does it have to be that way? At Impactpool we do not think so. In all our services we have a commitment to contributing to gender parity in International Organizations and when it comes to Executive Search, we break norms. Our slogan is "No women, No Fee".
