The job is a field work. Its not that hassle or difficult since we have a service. Working hours should be at least eight (8) hours. I practiced how to manage my time properly and at the same time productively. As the documentor in my group, the hardest part of my job is on writing manually the proceedings of the training. On the other hand, the most enjoyable part of my job is when we could gather more participants than we had on our last session and another is when the field teams are gathered after each field work.
Pros
High Salary, free service

Working with OXFAM GB has never been boring. Everyday is a learning process wherein I'm able to grow personally and professionally as a humanitarian and development worker. People in OXFAM are supportive since day 1. Staff, environment, and overall management encourages me to learn and grow everyday. Typical day at work would be going to the field and work with people in the community and in the local Government. Goes back to the office to make a report on a daily basis. Some days are busier than others, especially during training and workshop. Nonetheless, I get used to these which makes my every day a joyful one.

I have learned to be more confident in speaking in front of a crowd and more familiar with the MS office. I enjoyed the company of my co-workers whom I treat as my own siblings. The most enjoyable part of my job is that when I get to help our beneficiaries and see their smiling faces. Hardest part was when there is a distribution of non food items and because we follow a certain criteria, it's quite heart breaking for some who will not be included.
Pros
they always take their employees welfare at its best priority
