Project Development Officer II

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Being with DSWD F.O. X Family for almost 8 years gave me the opportunity to grow - career wise. The trainings are all for personal upliftment and were able to help me in the performance of my work efficiently, effectively, and smartly. The heads of office, headed by the Regional Director, Assistant RD for Operations, and ARDA were able to mold us into giving our all for the service of our less marginalized few and vulnerables in the society/community we are serving. Indeed, working with DSWD F.O. X is a fulfilling and rewarding work experience.

Pros

Travelling Allowance, Load Cards, and Technical Assistance

Cons

Long but fulfilling work hours

In going to the field or area of asssignment.

Being a government worker for almost 5 years is my pleasure and honored, I learned a lot and experienced actual interaction with the people who needs help.I loved my job and I'm proud being a government worker even though its a stressful job but it's has a great feeling that you help others.

I learned to be flexible and work under pressure.

Hardest part of the job is you'll handle 800-1,000 households and the management will expect an updated case folder for each household. The most enjoyable part is you are earning while serving others.
