    Please note that you are expected to write a separate and relevant cover letter for each position for which you are applying.

    For your cover letter(s), please use the language indicated beside the respective vacancy notice, which is the language of the duty station and in which a high level of competency is required. There is, however, provision for limited language training for the selected candidate if necessary.
