What is Group 2?

In accordance with RALS, UNHCR uses candidate groups in the recruitment for General Service positions. Group 2 is a candidate pool consisting of applicants who fall under one of the categories below, with one year of continuous or cumulative service in UNHCR/UN[1] in the country of the vacancy.
