Warning: Scam Alert

Fake vacancy announcements have been circulated in the name of the ISC and one of its former names, the International Social Science Council (ISSC), via job websites and emails imitating the ISC and the United Nations. The ISC is not an office of the UN.

One such scammer is humanresources@unissc.org, posing on fake UN job sites. Would-be applicants are invited to accept job opportunities, often being asked to send copies of personal documents, such as bank details.

Please consult this page for valid information on job opportunities. The ISC does not charge a fee at any stage of the job application process. We invite you to kindly pass on this warning to anyone you think may be affected.

Above warning is current as of 1 June 2020
