Freetown - Post Report Question and Answers

Knowing what you know now, would you still move to this city?

Yes. I have really enjoyed it. - Jan 2022

Yes. - Sep 2021

No. Maybe if you have small kids and need to save though. There were staffing gaps during Ebola and even after. Some jobs have had to be filled by Civil Service when FSOs won't bid. LES aren't highly skilled and since tours are just 2 years, you don't get consistent management. Some people stay for the 3rd year, we have no interest in that. - May 2018

Yes, but I would never stay beyond two years. Three years maybe if you had a happy spouse, young kids, and needed to save some money. - Sep 2017

Definitely! - Sep 2014

Yes, every day is different, the work is challenging, the team we have right now is working well together, and I like it. - Jun 2014

No. I hope to never return. - Aug 2013
