Interactive and more knowledge acquired.
POLIO CONTAINMENT SURVEYOR (Former Employee) –  Owerri, Imo State NigeriaMarch 31, 2019
A typical day at work is all about meeting people, asking questions, advising and listening to the complains and possibly the expected solutions to these complains.
I learnt to persevere as most of the people you meet on the course of the work could be a bit hostile, unaccommodating not willing to attend to you.
WHO management is of International Standard with excellent work place culture of organized administration.
The hardest part of the work is visiting very remote areas where access could be very difficult while the enjoyable part of the job is the incentives that follow and the knowledge acquired.

A place with clients and staff with diverse cultural background
Independent Worker (Former Employee) –  Lokoja, Nigeria.July 7, 2018
Part of my work routine included; undertaking general observations and other nursing related activities, recording information about Clients and ensuring effective communication with all staff members, and providing care and support as identified in care reviews. The management and workplace culture at the World Health Organisation was satisfactory. The hardest part of the job was trying to communicate with people who did not understand English. The most enjoyable part of the job was the thought of helping people to live a better life.

A very serious workplace with timelines and deliverables
National/Routine Immunization Facilitator/Monitor (Current Employee) –  Ibadan NigeriaJanuary 8, 2018
A typical day at work is hectic, there are briefings every morning after which everyone sets about completing their task for the day, i learnt a lot about community linkage and mobilization, monitoring and evaluation as well as timeliness and completeness of project report updates. There are strict workplace rules, albeit in a friendly and comfortable working environment. Sometimes, it might seem a little bit hard to meet up with the timelines, but the job is so enjoyable in that there is a lot of contact with the community.
