Translation and interpretation
In cooperation with People in Need’s 20 country programs the competency model has been gradually introduced into all relevant HR procedures not only at Headquarters level but also at country programs’ level. With regard to the working language in some of our country programs, there is a need to translate the model into several local languages: Russian, Arabic, Portuguese and French. Specifically the French is needed for the implementation of the competency model in Democratic Republic of Congo, where People in Need has been providing humanitarian and development assistance since 2008 and during this period has employed tens of national staff.
