Nelly [Eleni] B.

Associate Protection Expert at UNHCR



Versatile, self-motivated Associate Protection Expert and Legal professional with transferable skills obtained in fast paced, evolving sectors. I combine continued professional development with hands on experience with Regional Syrian Emergency Response, and individuals facing persecution. I proactively interface at all levels, clearly presenting information and adapting rapidly to new environments and cultural diversity. As a Court Lawyer, my legal role involved trials, or supporting and second chairing a Lawyer, when representing clients up to an executive level. Conversely, at UNHCR I deal directly with refugees, providing protection services to Persons fleeing their countrly, including counseling and legal aid services, and chairing protection and co-ordination meetings attended by NGOs staff operating in the field, armed forces and representatives of Ministry of Migration and Ministry of Education, to respond to critical field operational issues. Adapting seamlessly to new and evolving situations, I maintain a continuous emphasis on high standards in a fast paced setting and I attain the ability to positively liaise with colleagues, managers and stakeholders. I am a methodical and versatile bilingual individual who works collaboratively, confidently addressing and proactively communicating with individuals and large groups. Adeptly providing information and consultation, I adopt a “will do” approach to demanding assignments. Thriving in a dynamic setting, I liaise with and work alongside people from diverse cultures and groups, display attention to detail, and combine strategic thinking with a determination for people to be treated fairly and with dignity. Tenacious and results-driven, I deliver successful outcomes and carry out a lead function in all stages of projects. My life mojo: "Treat others, the way you want to be treated".
