This position allows flexibility in your work plan. As long as you see to your core responsibilities and those mentioned in your job description, you will be allowed to explore and learn new skills,... such as communications, event management and information technology. Also, the chemistry with coworkers is often excellent; most people choose to work for the UN instead of the private sector and are value-driven. I am very happy and proud to work for the UN.
