Monitoring and Evaluation Intern (Former Employee) –  Hargeisa27 November 2017
I was satisfied with the work both undertaken with Save the Children International and ANPPCAN-SOM, although there were some obstacles and challenges encountered during the work. Significantly, I have learned a lot from those jobs including the best way to manage projects, work with and lead a technical staff more than six persons and manage partner-donor relationships particularly the planning, implementation and evaluation of the projects. On the other hand, the management of those organizations was quite laudable in concurrence with their available local capacity for managing such institutions both technically and financially. In addition, the workplace culture was also friendly and quite assisting to resist the overload of the work with less benefits. In contrast, working with less salary, employing overload work, lacking technical capacity to evaluate the impact achieved by the project interventions made the job quite complicated and difficult, but having a friendly people in work, being with your family members and work in an environment with less tight strict rules and regulations was also, in contrast, so commendable. In conclusion, I have been satisfied with those jobs and earned concrete experience from them.

working with refugee children
Project Executive (Former Employee) –  Belgrade3 September 2017
A typical day at work was organizing their day, and activities.
We were doing workshops, talking about their trip to Serbia, etc.
Hardest part of the job was containing their stories, as they were away from their families, didn't know where was their next stop... And the best part was having fun with them, all the playing and celebrating life.

For Self-Starters
International Programs Advisor (Former Employee) –  United Kingdom15 August 2017
The mission is vital. If you're directly implementing programming, it's very fulfilling. For less direct roles, the impact of your work is less visible, and it's up to you to find the motivation for less pay, more hours, and the layers of bureaucracy.
Pros
Mission Driven
Cons
A bit corporate for a non-profit organisation
