mamoon, I am sorry to hear that. If you write the story of why you feel that way, I could publish it Sudan Watch for some UN visitors to see.

I completely agree Mamoon. At least in the case of national positions. See I keep hearing these stories over and over, and am pretty sure there's quite some truth to it, because essentially its quite commonplace in corrupt countries and systems.

The first point of contact for the applications is a Sudanese HR recruitment guy. If he has a friend or distant relative he's told about the job and would rather have, he just pretends to not have received applications that will rival those of his friend/relative....so they never get on the shortlist for more fair/competent people to see.

Also, they strictly use number of years of experience as a weeder, completely disregarding the quality of that work. If one work properly for 3 years at a high standards with legitimate appraisals, that's trumped by 5 years of mind-numbing, low quality work of someone who can't even write in english properly, who is supposedly fluent.

Finally, there's no weight for education......education in a globally recognized university, vs. a low quality Sudanese school. There just needs to be checks to ensure the first point of contact is competent, able to properly judge and most of all is fair. It benefits everyone in the end, except for the incompetent people that were "hooked up".

Global citizen, mamoon and Anonymous,I think you are right :(
Corruption and nepotism in this devastating country effect, even, the credibility and transparency of the institutions with cause like UN !!!
Impossible requirements are put in vacancies announcement i.e. the experience, and English Language fluency..
Skeptic question about the “credibility of hiring national recruits on fair and equal basis “have been arising with a loud voice and it is unlikely that all these people complain about this issue unless they are completely or partially right!!! It is up to UN to answer it....

There is a better website for jobs at the UN: united nations jobs dot org. Hundreds of jobs are listed every day. Good luck to all! Perseverance is the key here... keep applying!

The UN qualifications are unrealistic unbelievable and untrusted. Because there are persons working with them who are known to us do not really have those higher degrees talked of. For the case of South Sudanese there is great need for UN to positively discriminate.

Thank you for the blog
I'm writing to you from Nairobi, Kenya from a consultancy firm. Presently we are recruiting an Investment Manager for an International Organisation and looking for candidates of Sudanese nationality.

Is it possible to have a link on Sudan watch page? Thanks
