Good productivity

I worked hard as a volunteer for years and gained much experience on the job but promotion wasn't forthcoming The policies were strict and I had to be very disciplined to comply

Very healthy workplace with supportive team members.

Salaries especially for Adhoc staff need to be reviewed. Benefits should also be added to Adhoc Staff even though it might not be up to the ones permanent staff collects. There should also be a system in place that retains those that had been dedicated Adhoc staff into full permanent staff after a certain consistent period of years.

Pros

Free training, supportive teams/ supervisors, internet access

Cons

Overworking frequently occurs.

Fun relaxed place

IHVN is a family-friendly workplace and they support women with young families by having a more relaxed structure.However, the only thing I did not enjoy here was when a new task was given, not much training nor briefing was provided.Many were left struggling until they found a way - and if you didn't, it would count against you!

Ihvn

The Institute is an International NGO that helps people living with HIV and tuberculosis. The work life balance is great. Very poor job security. I gained valuable experience during my time with this organization.

The IHVN Workplace

A typical work day at the IHVN starts at 8am till 5pm. Staff resume in a somewhat serene environment with the entire power and network system already up and running unless there is an electrical or network challenge which would hamper work flow until attended to. Staff resume early enough to finish up pending activities or startup activities for the day before setting out to field or facility visit as the IHVN is about treatment, care and support of HIV patients.

Productive and fun workplace with Vivat Table Water and Institute of Human Virology Nigeria.

At IHVN, work Starts by 8am to 5pm Mondays to Fridays . I learned how to Make Necessary Entries in the cash book as well as balancing it; Reconciliation of Bank statement with Cash Book; Preparation of Quarterly budget for Various Grands; Preparation of Bank Instructions for Inter Account Transfer. The management of the Organization is very Effective in making sure the Allocated Resources are Efficiently utilized. i really enjoyed working with my Co- workers, they are good in motivating as well as helping me understand some basic principles. The hardest part of the job as a Finance Assistant was the preparation of the Quarterly Budget, its difficult when the you have an incomplete work-plan. the most interesting part of the work its the Effective nature of the work. everything thing is done using Computer and Effective Software that makes work easy.

Pros

Free lunches and Tea

Cons

Long hours
