At LDO, we depend on our trusted field staff on the ground to implement projects in Syria, who have a vast range of experience and qualifications. The LDO network consists of Consultants, Experts, Trainers and Facilitators, with specialists ranging from lawyers to experts in Good Governance and with pockets of experience in the field of local and provisional administration, institutional development, dialogue and community development and essential service provision.
Our WASH experts have technical experience and qualifications in the field of Water and Sanitation enabling them to conduct projects in the WASH sector. These qualifications including PhD in Mechanical Engineering, with over five years’ experience in the WASH program.
The Local councils form part of our networks with close relations with a large number of Local Councils working with LDO. Having worked with the majority of the opposition Local Councils in Syria, our relations with them have been made stronger as we work with and for the benefit of the Local Councils. This makes coordination and work in hard-to-reach areas more possible, and who better knows their communities than these governing bodies.
Our recruitment and selection process is based on the selection of the best for the job, from within the available skill pool in Syria. The employment process is important in order to increase efficiency in the hiring and retention and to ensure consistency and compliance in the process. There are several steps to the recruitment process: sourcing candidates, reviewing and tracking applicants, conducting interviews and selection for employment. Our team inside is continuously expanding with the growth of the work required inside.
