CONSULTANTS AND PSA SUBSCRIBERS

(CATEGORIES, CONTRACT DURATION AND HONORARIA) 

CONSULTANTS

Consultants hold the status of “official” of the Organization and they represent the Organization externally.

A Consultant is generally engaged to perform functions for which FAO has a temporary but not continuous need. They are recruited to perform functions of an advisory or consultative nature, for which they have the requisite academic background and/or relevant work experience.  

In all cases, Consultants must meet minimum relevant qualifications and language proficiency standards similar to those of professional positions: Advanced University Degree and working knowledge of one of the FAO languages (English, French, Spanish, Arabic, Chinese, Russian) and limited knowledge of a second FAO language.

Levels

There are three different categories of Consultants based on the number of years of professional experience requested:

C-Base level

The C-level Consultant is typically employed for assignments requiring from one to four years of relevant experience post graduation.
