Jobs in CERF

Please be aware of fraudulent job offers

Fake vacancy announcements have been repeatedly circulated in the name of the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) via non-UN websites and email imitating UN email addresses. One example of fake email is As part of the UN Secretariat, CERF posts job vacancies only at and, in the cases of temporary vacancy announcements, on the UN Secretariat intranet site iSeek.

Various schemes, being circulated via e-mails, from the Internet web sites, and via regular mail or fax, falsely stating that they are issued by or associated with the United Nations. These schemes may seek to extract money and in some cases personal details from the recipients of such correspondence. Such schemes are fraudulent. In some cases, correspondence falsely signed in the name of real CERF officials has ensued, asking would-be applicants to part with copies of personal documents and even money.

The schemes, which have no connection whatsoever with the United Nations or the United Nations System of organizations, take many forms. New schemes are appearing with increasing frequency. Please disregard any emails, or non-UN websites, purporting to announce CERF job vacancies, and pass on this warning to anyone that may be affected.
