Pros: it was nice working with that particular team.

My typical day at work began at 8am with previous days reviews,looking at my to do list, if was to start with recruitment, Interviews would be top on the list with my schedule hanging next to me.
I learnt that time management helps sort out alot messes that there could be and help one finish up work in a more professional way, giving credit to you – more... the performer and the Department as a whole. My coworkers were part of the teams in which i worked with and socially interacted with during times off or break times.
The hardest part of my job was on how to communicate a negative change to a like issuing a Termination letter,downsizing.
I enjoyed Orienting staff into the Organization, explaining Company Policies and handing over an Offer, Contract, JDs to staff this created alot Joy to me.

The hardest part of my job was that it involved taking both the good and the bad decisions – more... to emphasize that this is not necessarily the organization per see, but rather it is the nature of the job.
The most enjoyable part of the job is when you see the results of investment in human resources. It shows you that you have added value and gives you pride that you have been able to make a difference

Pros: employee empowerment in terms of work and results
Cons: long hours and multi-deadlines requiring work to be carried home
A typical work day involves adhoc varied requests colored with meetings and subsequent routine work done in late hours either at office or home I learnt to be multi-tasking and innovative in a highly pressured work environment.

Co-workers are cooperative and understand the common goals hardest part of the job pertains to top-down initiatives that are not clearly defined and sometimes not inline with the needs of users. Financial reporting and management of clear mandated initiatives are the most enjoyable part of my work. – less

It should be noted that The Food Security and Nutrition programme was funded by ECHO and included – more... four components(Food Security, Nutrition, Disaster preparedness and Emergency Response). This programme was successfully implemented despite the challenges of getting appropriate and competent staff locally. This has been possible because of team work , the involvement of each stakeholders and the support of the management. In addition to that our focus on capacity building of the community members and local staff has contributed to the achievement of the established objectives according to WV and ECHO guidelines. What is hard in working in South Sudan is the insecurity and the reluctance of certain autorities to allow expatriates to support the programme – less
