    • 1 break of 7 working days every 3 months + USD 850 allowance (for each break).
    • 1 day off per worked month.

    Possibility to spend a weekend to Abuja every 6 weeks, on demand, and if allowed by context. Ticket paid by SI.

    These days off, as well as the breaks, are not deducted from the paid leaves that are paid every months with your salary: they are offered by SI.

    Social and medical cover:
    Expatriates benefit from an insurance package which reimburses all healthcare expenses (including medical and surgical expenses, dental care and ophthalmological expenses, repatriation) and a welfare system including war risks. Essential vaccination and antimalarial treatment costs are refunded.

    LIVING CONDITIONS

    The Supply Manager lives in SI’s compound – “guest house” (GH) with the other international staff. He/she has private room and shares the bathroom and the kitchen. The GH is next to the office and located in a residential area.

    The expatriates are from different backgrounds and nationalities. They are hard-workers, highly involved in their jobs, but they are united and work well together. They also enjoy spending time together on a regular basis.

    Despite the current political and humanitarian context in Borno state, Maiduguri provide proper living conditions. Electricity is available at the office and at the GH (except a small period during the night), communication and internet are available, either on the SI provided network or the 4G network. All essential goods (food, hygiene etc..) can be bought locally in the small shops around the office, or in the pre-validated supermarket. There is a dense social life in Maiduguri, and visits to other NGOs are possible, as well as some pre-validated places.

    The constraints related to security do exist (movement restrictions, curfew at 9:30PM.), but they are bearable, as they allow personal activities.

    If you are shortlisted, please not that SI’s recruitment process usually includes: an HR interview, reference checks, written test, technical interview.
