Jobs in international NGOs

There are lots of international NGOs working on different projects in Pakistan. They have foreign employees but they understand how important it is to have local employees. Local employees minimize costs. If international non-governmental organizations hire people from foreign countries, they will need extra money to pay them and give them incentives and eventually cost more than local employees. Local employees are more effective especially when you want to start a project in area where you have a language barrier or communication gap. Locally hired people help international organizations as interpreters and it helps the organization to achieve targets successfully.
