Impact Pool has been commissioned by the UN Secretary General’s office to assist in making nominations to appoint the future leader of the UN peacekeeping forces.
According to Impactpool’s co-founder Henrik Rydén, this is the first time that the UN goes beyond its internal structure to fill senior roles at this level.
– We have an established process with a large user base. We help the UN by spreading the message in social channels and by creating a campaign to build awareness of what the job entails, says Henrik Rydén.
Impactpool’s business model is to have a career site where they collect vacancies from international organizations such as the UN. The organizations pay to post ads and the candidates can pay a sum to get help with pitching their application and learn how to prepare in the best way. The career page has today 165 000 members, according to Impactpool.
