GOT THE JOB? Yes
To Whom it May Concern,
I am fascinated to work with the UN, because I believe to achieve lasting social change through the involvement of for-profit investment require the composition of knowledge, negotiating skills and hands on experience with the private sector in development supported by disciplined rigorous administrative management. I want to explore the boundaries of my performance and increase my competency to take part in projects managing investments related development programs to ensure the balance between philanthropy and financial viability. Being an expert in public administration experience with international organisations in procurement and coordination support with strong analytical and communication background, I would like to offer my skills and expertise for the position Administrative Assistant with UN. My professional motivation is to work in a challenging work environment with the possibility for professional growth. In the following I wish to highlight three of my key competencies and personal passion for working with quality coordination and administrative support, which makes me an ideal candidate for Administrative Assistant position.
Intuitive personality – observation and sensing information
Providing administrative link between the various organizational functions has been a guiding light in my career choices thus far. In my roles, albeit very different in nature, the common denominator has always been the drive to support program mechanisms through research and administrative support. Through interacting with colleagues and stakeholders, I tend to quickly observe and analyze individual roles, opportunities, challenges and motivations. One of my professional achievements was the coordination and organization of a Quality Laboratory workshop in East-Africa. During the process I had to accommodate interest of various stakeholders, observe different information flows while meeting tight deadlines. The workshop was a success and gave the opportunity for Reproductive Health (RH) commodity manufacturers and laboratory technicians to deepen their understanding of to logistics and quality testing.
Structured thinking – a drive to deliver results
Having worked with project management in academia and international organizations, I have developed a structured mindset, client oriented attitude and strong ownership to deliver high quality results. I believe that my background and diverse experience could bring effective problem solving skills and support the UN's mission at the same time provide an outstanding opportunity for professional development and personal growth.
