On the 19th of December 2017, Egyptian Council for Foreign Affairs (ECFA) has received a Delegation from UN-DFS, the provider of Human Resources & Recruitment Services to UN Peacekeeping, Special Political and other Field Missions. The Delegation included Ms. Huda Hannina, Chief, Outreach and Workforce Planning Section at the UN, New York, and Ms. Seham Al-Kafy, Chief of Auditing Section. The following dignitaries were also present: H.E. Ambassador Amre El-Jowaily, Deputy Assistant Foreign Minister for United Nations Affairs at Egypt’s Foreign Ministry, ECFA Chairman, H.E. Ambassador Dr. Mounir Zahran, ECFA Executive Director, H.E. Ambassador Dr. Ezzat Saad, and ECFA Board Member, Dr. Osama El-Ghazaly Harb.
The aims of the meeting were for the Delegation to introduce career and field job opportunities available at the United Nations Offices in various regions and in different disciplines, and to explore ways of enhancing cooperation and coordination with ECFA to serve as a link with other research centres, Egypt Civil Society Organizations and ECFA’s partners in the Arab World. This, in turn, will publicize those career opportunities, shed light on how to apply for available job vacancies and help move beyond different stages of job application.
