Chevening is looking for individuals who have a clear post-study career plan. Please outline your immediate plans upon returning home and your longer term career goals. You may wish to consider how these relate to what the UK government is doing in your country.
Upon graduation day and the time of packing my suitcase returning back to Syria comes, I hope that the current situation has come to an end and the process of rebuilding the country has begun. My immediate career plan is to return to my hometown, an ancient metropolis and one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world. It makes me sad to say that at this time, Aleppo is distinguished as the most vandalized city since the WWII.
I plan to get involved in humanitarian work specifically in supply chain management and logistics since the country and particularly my city is heavily laden with human crises and more volunteers are urgently required to help those in desperate need. What my one-year master study in Britain relates to that is when being a Chevening Alumni and a UK university graduate; this will enhance my competencies to search and become a member of any British special committee or organization offering aid and food supplies to the refugee's camps located near the borders of Turkey. The UK's membership of the International Syria Support Group has many notable actions to be recognized whether politically or through humanitarian assistance; The UK has committed £2.3bn of humanitarian aid to the region since the start of the conflict and has partners working on the Syrian ground like the British Red Cross and the Syrian Arab Red Crescent partnership.
I look for accomplishments in reaching secluded areas and entering humanitarian aids to besieged territories where people are in danger of death due to hunger and extreme lack of pure water and medicines. Furthermore, I will strive to launch initiatives with the help of NGOs to stop depriving civilians of their basic rights of food and medical needs. These goals can only be achieved by a senior international consultant who is competent in the field of strategic management and can propose sound and effective policies to determine the required actions resulting in task achievement.
In the long run, I see myself running senior roles as diverse as international supply chain management, business development, and management consultancy. I am the type of person who likes to get the instructions and then be left by myself or with a group to do the assignment or task. The authority and innovation that features these positions make it incumbent on me to become an expert in these fields and become a successful decision maker.
