Temporary positions are used to fill appointments for a period of less than one year to meet seasonal or peak workloads and distinct short-term requirements. Temporary positions may, however, be expanded beyond one year only when there are surge provisions, and functional requirements related to field operations and where circumstances have allowed for special projects with limited assignments. Temporary appointments, which incorporate the initial appointment and any subsequent lengthenings, may not surpass a total period of 24 months at any given time. Staff partners holding a temporary appointment are regarded as external nominees when applying for job openings.
Temporary job openings are advertised in Inspira, the Organization’s talent management platform. Applicants interested in applying for these positions must complete and submit their application through Inspira. Positions that are available for such short-term necessities are advertised with reference to their temporary nature.
