    Solidarites International (SI) has not been active in Nigeria in the past and therefore has a limited experience in the country. SI sent a first exploratory team in Nigeria (North-Eastern States) for three weeks in April. A continued presence of senior managers has been maintained since mid-May in Borno state and Abuja. Additionally, SI registration in Nigeria is ongoing with the help of a local lawyer.

    We are recruiting to fill the position below:

The coordination is composed of a head of mission, a program coordinator, a logistics coordinator, an administrative coordinator, and now a field coordinator for the Maiduguri base. The coordination is expected to spend a consequent amount of time in Maiduguri, in direct support of field based operations. Therefore, the mission has a coordination team based in between Abuja and Maiduguri, which includes a Head of Mission, an Administrative coordinator a Logistic Coordinator and a Program coordinator.
