Welcome to ventus
Welcome to the Recruiting System
On behalf of the German Foreign Office, the Center for International Peace Operations (ZIF) is responsible for the recruitment, training and secondment of civilian personnel to international organizations and their peace operations, humanitarian operations and election observation missions. We are currently seconding experts and executive personnel to the EU, OSCE, UN, OAS and NATO, as well as to the International Criminal Court and the European Council.

Please find below our current open positions and trainings.

After registering, you have full access to all ventus features: create your virtual candidate profile and, in just a few clicks, you can apply for the ZIF expert pool, for exciting positions on missions, or for our training courses. By setting up your individual job and training alert, you can also let ventus notify you of relevant new openings or trainings suitable to your profile.
We recommend using the web-based version of ventus on a computer rather than the mobile version on your mobile phone, as some features are not well adapted to mobile devices.

For more information on working in peacekeeping and humanitarian missions as well as election observations and on how we recruit for our expert pool, please consult our website:
