UN VOOLUNNTEEER DESCCRIPTION OFF ASSIGNNMEENT ETHR001066-FinanceOffcerrc The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme is the UN organization that promotes volunteerism to support peace and development worldwide. Volunteerism can transform the pace and nature of development and it benefits both society at large and the individual volunteer. UNV contributes to peace and development by advocating for volunteerism globally, encouraging partners to integrate volunteerism into development programming, and mobilizing volunteers.In most cultures volunteerism is deeply embedded in long-established, ancient traditions of sharing and support within the communities. In this context, UN Volunteers take part in various forms of volunteerism and play a role in development and peace together with co-workers, host agencies and local communities.In all assignments, UN Volunteers promote volunteerism through their action and conduct. Engaging in volunteer activity can effectively and positively enrich their understanding of local and social realities, as well as create a bridge between themselves and the people in their host community. This will make the time they spend as UN Volunteers even more rewarding and productive :

Addis Ababa is a large capital city with a variety of schools, medical facilities, restaurants, entertainment and other things that you would expect. It is home to the African Union, The Economic Commission to Africa and numerous UN agencies and NGOs. As such there are a large number of international staff from around the world. It is sometimes referred to as Africa’s capital and if a country has an embassy anywhere in Africa, it will probably have one in Addis. The city is over-crowded with the resultant heavy traffic. Cars, like other imported goods, are expensive and there are slow procedures to buy or import one, but taxis are readily available. There is a range of accommodation from apartments to houses though large gardens are rare. Prices can be high, and the quality of building finish is often poor.

Electricity supply in Ethiopia is 220-240 volts, 50 cycles AC accessible via 13-amp, through either a narrow two pin (Italian) socket, or the type of grounded socket found in most European countries. Replacement 28 Dec 2018 plugs can easily be bought locally. However, power cuts are common, and it is advisable to have a generator. Proximity to the office and directions of peak traffic flow are important consideration when finding a place to live as travel can be slow. The city is generally safe though pick pockets operate in crowded areas. Ethiopia has a range of natural and cultural attractions though distances are great, and it is often easier to take an internal flight to reach them. Addis is a major airline hub with good connections to many international destinations. There are sporadic outbreaks of political and ethnic violence in different parts of the country which result in temporary localised travel bans by the UN Department of Safety and Security. Addis Ababa is a foreigner-friendly city, in terms of economy, local society, expats, safety, climate, no malaria. Only internet can be slow at times. As this is a national UN Volunteer assignment, the UN Volunteer will be responsible for arranging his/her own housing and other living essentials. National UN Volunteers are part of the malicious insurance plan. As sssiign nmme en ntt DDe ettai ils AssignmeentTitele Finance Officer.
