Working for NATO

What does NATO offer?

The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) brings together Europe and North America in a unique defence and security alliance. Today the Alliance, as it is called, is engaged in a broad range of activities designed to further international cooperation and to confront the new security challenges of the 21st century.

The NATO International Staff (IS) offers challenging and rewarding employment opportunities in various fields, ranging from policy development, facilitation of dialogue and policy programme implementation to the provision of services and support for the smooth, effective operation of the Organization and to managing and allocating resources.

Joining the International Staff means working with colleagues of 28 different nationalities, as well as with national delegations, representatives of NATO countries and partners, and members of the International Military Staff. It is a highly stimulating multicultural environment.

The International Staff is located in the beautiful city of Brussels, Belgium, considered by many to be the capital and the heart of Europe, and very close to other countries and capitals.
