Interesting job in an extremely complex working environment
COUNTRY HUMAN RESOURCES MANAGER (Former Employee) – Juba, South Sudan – October 13, 2013
Day starts with review of the priorities for the day. Requests, queries, questions on various HR issues start streaming in from managers and teams.
Everything is urgent so planning and prioritising is important. Management very supportive. Co-workers demanding and complex and therefore extra attention needed to be given to their needs. Hardest part of the job was in terminating contracts coming to an end naturally or involuntarily. It would meet with hostile reaction from the staff affected. Most enjoyable part of the job was visiting teams in remote locations, they would be feel valued and appreciated.
Hard to Work Allowance of £3, 500 per annum
Harsh climate, lack of good social services (medical, schools) in Juba
