What is included in the Profile?

You will find a set of expectations for an effective UN manager in ten management areas. Included are essential knowledge a manager must have and skills a manager must use.

Why do I need the Profile?

Every UN manager at every level and in all functions is accountable for these expectations. No matter where you are in your management career, the Profile is a tool to gauge your experience and skills in relation to the UN’s expectations for managers and to plan your personal development.

When should I complete the Profile?

It is most helpful when you are first appointed as a manager of others (at any level), when you take on a new role, and when you are planning your development for future roles.

Who can see my Profile?

Your Profile is personal and you choose whom to share it with.
