I am a 30-year-old Syrian national with permanent residency in Australia. I have five years of field and managerial experience in various challenging environments in the Middle East. I am currently seeking opportunities to maximise my skills in humanitarian field and international development in Australia.
For the past 5 years, I have had progressively advancing experience in the implementation of humanitarian and development projects, first as a United Nations (UN) Field Officer and later growing into management roles with Adam Smith International (ASI) Turkey. This experience allowed me to design humanitarian interventions and support the improvement of good governance practices for partners on the ground. I also gained invaluable experience in cross-border remote programme management as I occupied the position of Area Manager with Tamkeen Project and Delivery Manager with AJACS Project. In addition to the project management experience, both positions with ASI offered me a notable familiarity and insights regarding a wide range of donors including the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development (DFID), the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and other institutional donors.
I developed excellent research experience while working with ASI, which was required to ensure safe, transparent and accountable implementation in challenging communities. Extensive research was required to thoroughly evaluate projects, enhance delivery and to fulfill donor reporting requirements. I previously worked as a Senior Researcher for Hiwar Center for Studies and Research in Istanbul, where I deployed my deep understanding of the Syrian conflict and its impact on neighboring countries in the economic, social, political and humanitarian spheres. I also increased my knowledge of various research techniques to gather relevant information, including document analysis, surveys, case studies and interviews, eventually analysing and interpreting data for final reports.
I now hope to build on my experience in project management in Australia and believe my unique set of skills and qualifications would be an asset to your company.
