Employment at NATO Headquarters

Temporary staff

NATO is looking for applicants to fill temporary positions that arise occasionally at NATO Headquarters, Brussels, Belgium.

All applications for a temporary assignment will have to be submitted via the online platform http://www.nato.int/recruitment.

Please note that no application in paper or by email format will be accepted.

IMPORTANT MESSAGE: The Temporary Vacancy is now available under reference 200713. Therefore, candidates interested by a temporary assignment at NATO HQ must register via our online platform..

Are you a national of a NATO member state, with skills in a relevant discipline, and proficiency in English or French (preferably with a good knowledge of the other language)?

Are you passionate in areas such as diplomacy, policy development, management, public affairs, project management, IT, secretarial and administrative support, and technical and maintenance work?

Then this might be an opportunity for you!

How to apply?

Complete an online application form: https://nato.taleo.net/careersection/jobdetail.ftl?job=200713&lang=en
When submitting your application, you are not applying for a particular assignment. You will receive an acknowledgement of receipt of your application.

If your profile is of interest to the organisation, you may be invited for an online video interview assessing your behavioural competencies. We will include you in our temporary staff database, depending on the outcome of this interview. In the event a request for a temporary assignment arises that fits your profile, you might attend a further interview (phone, SKYPE or at HQ) with the hiring manager, assessing your fit for a specific temporary assignment.

It is a condition of employment that before a temporary staff member can be appointed, the Organization must have received a security clearance certificate (minimum NATO Secret) from the government of the country or countries of which he/she is a national.


Note that this process is only to be included in our temporary database, and does not constitute a guarantee of employment.

You are responsible for keeping your information up-to-date by making the appropriate changes (e.g. availability, clearance etc) directly in their Taleo profile, if and when required! Please do not re-apply if changes occur, but edit your application at any time.

Any questions on this subject should be sent to interimstaff@hq.nato.int.
