The most useful review selected by Indeed
I enjoyed working for two different UN organisations in a period of 15 years. (With a 3 year gap between them). I enjoyed them both even though stress levels were high and there was little or no work-life balance (country specific). The first 13’ years I enjoyed thoroughly, with the variety of responsibilities and great colleagues and team spirit.

Great experience and knowledge gained.

Training and development of staff / handlers, managing of dog unit and logistics on a daily basis. Members were trained from green to well qualified handlers.Working conditions and cultural differences were a challenge.

La jornada se iniciaba a las 06:00, actividad física y desayuno, charla de actividades para el día, patrullajes terrestres según planificación, inserciones aérea según disposiciones del mando. Todo se dió de acuerdo al período previo al despliegue, por tal razón nada fue difícil. Lo destacable, fue el reencuentro con mi familia en República Dominicana, en un período de descanso.


Excelente sistema de seguros de vida, y de viaje, como también la logística


No hubo percepción de puntos negativos o contras.

I loved working in a team

I have worked around people for 4 years, a typical day was 12-14 hours, I loved the pressure and time constraints. Feeling accomplished when work got done on time and was right. The management was friendly, and helpful and always there to assist. The hardest part of the job was leaving (consultation) and was not a permanent position.


Good working environment


Not permanent
