UNV seeks Bosnian specialists for the reconstruction of their country
30 April 1997
Bonn, Germany: At the initiative of the UN-Volunteer Program (United Nations Volunteers/UNV), Bosnian war refugees in the Federal Republic of Germany will be offered the opportunity to return to Bosnia as specialists.
This plan should simultaneously support the reconstruction of the country as well as facilitate the reintegration of returning refugees. The pilot project under the auspices of the Central Office for Employment (ZAV) will be funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Co-operation and Development.
One hundred Bosnian specialists will be identified who will cooperate either with international organizations or work directly in the rebuilding and settlement projects of individual Cantons. Professionals are sought from several different sectors: administration, finance, construction, medicine, and agriculture. A basic knowledge of English is preferred, though not required. Successful candidates will receive a one year contract with a monthly allowance of US$500 as well as health and accident insurance coverage. The International Organization for Migration (IOM) has offered to assist the candidates and their families with their return trip to Bosnia through the REAG and GARP programs.
The UN Volunteer program has been working in different countries with National United Nations Volunteers for many years, utilizing local knowledge in a focused manner.
Interested candidates can apply by sending a detailed CV in English or Bosnian to: UNV, Christoph Beck, Postfach 260111, 53153 Bonn.
