UNMISS Mission in South Sudan

Dyncorp has contacted me about a position in South Sudan under the UNMISS as a Corrections Advisor. Does anyone out there know more about this mission or know someone who might? I would appreciate info off board or introducing me to someone who would know more.

Thanks a lot.

Mike

Good mate of mine (former SOCNET member) was there in 2012, with the UN mission before South Sudan split...

It was a few years ago, but I can't imagine the place has improved yet! Happy to forward any specific questions you have.

As an aside, he worked out of the capital, had a lot of food shipped in regularly from home, and still came back looking like a starving marathon runner.

You need to talk to MDWest. I think he is offline for a few days but should be back soon. He can probably tell you anything you want to know about it.
