Human Resources Officer (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 15 October 2016
I began by going over the list from the previous day, setting priorities. I reviewed the progress of existing projects, then checked the calendar to refresh my memory on the upcoming week. I liked to meet with my staff early, mid and late week to discuss priorities, checked progress, and then prepared for the following week. I wanted to make sure, as much as possible, that we could all dedicate to tasks that moved projects forward, so I made habits out of organizational tasks for speed
Clasissifed (Current Employee) – Montréal, QC – 8 September 2016
Very good job for learning, but very bureaucratic and extremely political to progress into management posts. Due to each member state's representation requirements some very unqualified people make it to management just by their government supporting their profile. Hard for Canadians to move up since it's the hoist nation and therefore no room for senior management for Canadians.
No Income tax as UN employee
Beuraucratic and hard to move up in the ranks due to politics
I had six month internship in ICAO . It was an excellent experiment for me which help me learning a lot. It was good opportunity to transfer my knowledge to practical skill. My co-workers were awesome and supporting.
very good enviorment where you can be a very productive person
IT Specialist (Current Employee) – canada – 19 March 2015
one of the United Nations agency, I have always enjoyed working with people and I think my previous experience will allow me to work as part of the team and to be an effective representative as well. Beside patience, organization skills and creativity
International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) is an agency of the United Nations. It is an Aviation organization made up of many states who are members of this Organization. There are three official languages. I worked with Aviation auditors (seconded officers) preparing them to do audits in member states. The work environment is very interesting and employees work both on an national and international level with member states. ICAO has 6 regional offices in Lima, Mexico City, Nairobi, Dakar, Bangkok and Paris and often dealt with the regional offices. Employees are given the opportunity to work in any of these offices if they wished. In addition, there are several delegation representating their countries that are housed at ICAO.
I have learnt a lot about aviation and especially meeting people from different cultural background was a plus for me. I enjoyed my years at ICAO and made a lot of friends not only in Montreal but from other countries as well.
In summary, it is quite a challenging Organizaltion to work for, meeting people from almost all over the world and since it is an agency of the United Nations, there is protocol to be respected at all times.
Short working hours 35 hours a week and there are summer hours.
