Team Leader (Former Employee) –  Sydney NSWApril 7, 2019
The job requires experience and being able to communicate. I learned how to build conversation with strangers and educating them on what the company do. The management is very supportive and encouraging. Everyone is treated with respect. The hardest part of the job is when you dont meet your target for the week and the most enjoyable part of the job is when you meet your daily target and get bonus.
Pros
Bonuses
Cons
Long hours

Interesting work, poor accountability
Youth Development Program Officer (Former Employee) –  Bishkek, KGApril 3, 2019
UNICEF provides a platform for realistic altruism. Overall, the mission is to improve social economic welfare for the world.

Often the allocation of funds and accountability of projects were overlooked, which leads to poor moral of long term projects.

I enjoyed my brief contract with UNICEF, the pay is good but the organization of projects can use some work. I recognize that this is partially the fault of the organizations you work with, but it can be frustrating
