The Ministry of Foreign Affairs promotes the applications of Italian citizens interested in working for international organizations. It has a database specifically for this purpose, which is constantly updated by Office 5 of the General Directorate for Human Resources and Organization.
The service aims to provide information on competitions and other job openings within various international organizations and allows its users to submit their application and/or upload their Curriculum Vitae directly online.
