Job openings at the OSCE

Positions within the OSCE are advertised on the OSCE Secretariat’s website at The U.S. government does not receive applications for OSCE employment. There are two methods of employment with the OSCE: secondment and contract.

OSCE Seconded Positions

OSCE member States “second” their citizens to support the organization, that is, they lend or assign their nationals to positions within the OSCE. The U.S. Mission works with government contract-agencies to provide qualified U.S. individuals for assignments with the OSCE. The contract agencies maintain a database of qualified individuals and identify candidates when the U.S. Mission wishes to nominate a U.S. citizen for a specific vacancy. If the OSCE selects a U.S. nominated candidate, the contract-agency hires the individual at our behest and deploys him/her to the OSCE. For positions contact PAE Government Services, Inc at

NOTE: Currently the USOSCE is not seconding to the OSCE’s Junior Professional Program.

To participate in Election Observations or secondment to OSCE field missions contact PAE Government Services, Inc at

Positions listed on the OSCE Employment Web page designated as “Contracted” indicate that the OSCE hires directly for these jobs. Participating States do not nominate or compensate candidates. You must apply directly with the OSCE and may use the online or printable application provided on its employment webpage.
