Afghanistan Ahmad Zia Baha

Programme Co-ordinator
A day in the life of CTG staff
Day In The Life
We all have a human need to be appreciated for our efforts.

My role is to ensure the taskforce in the Central Region runs as smoothly as possible, and involves working quite closely with the co-lead, Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). A lot of my work comprises of providing support for displaced people and liaising with government, I/NGO’s and representatives to contribute to policy analysis, training and development, and implement response plans and durable solutions to IDP settlements. A typical work day would involve me overseeing my teams as they progress on various activities.

I am most proud of the environment that I have created with my team since taking over as crew lead. We have fun and get the job done at the same time.

My advice to those wanting to pursue a career as a humanitarian would be to remain honest, hardworking and patient. In order to succeed in a job like this, you must be willing to develop your skills and experience to learn and motivate people.

Originally from Kabul, Afghanistan, I applied for this vacancy because it’s an excellent match for my skills and experience – and because it represents a challenge which I know I’ll relish. As someone with over 10 years of experience in the field of economic development as well as under numerous CTG contracts, I find the organization to be very professional. During my last employment contract, I received a great deal of support from CTG, and I am very happy in my current position. CTG plays a brilliant role in the field of recruitment as an international organization in Afghanistan.

I think that the role of women, specifically in war-torn countries like Afghanistan, is imperative. I commend CTG for their commitment to 30% of roles to be filled by women, but I believe it should be higher than this since women are half of our society and they play an important role in the humanitarian and development sector.

I’m optimistic about the future of Afghanistan. There are currently ongoing discussions about peace by the US and other international partners; once the security measures are in place, it will be very much possible to build a better Afghanistan.
