To be qualified/cleared for the Pathways Pool Initiative, candidates will be appraised in a face-to-face Assessment Centre and precleared for (immediate) deployment. IOM will articulate what skills, attributes, values and competencies will define future success in the two roles and assess against it accordingly. Several UN sister agencies use Assessment Centres for higher-level posts, particularly managerial positions and leadership roles.
An Assessment Centre is an HR management process that consists in assessing the skills of individuals by confronting them to simulation exercises, skills assessment tests and psychometric testing. It aims to complement more traditional assessment methods, such as assessment interviews or self-assessments with the end goal of improving HR decision-making.
Selected applicants will be invited to participate in a competitive Assessment Centre conducted by an external entity. Once approved, candidates will receive guidance, and will be presented with professional opportunities for their consideration.
