MOZAMBIQUE – ADMINISTRATIVE MANAGER (M/F) – PALMA 153 views0 applications


Desired start date: ASAP

Duration of the mission: 6 months

Location: Palma Mozambique

ABOUT THE MISSION

Solidarités International intervened in Mozambique in March 2019 for a few months following the passage of Cyclone Idai, which hit the Province of Sofala and the city of Beira hard. Operations were suspended after the emergency phase and the mission closed. The evolution of the situation in Cabo Delgado province, hit by several cyclones and severely affected by the violent actions of armed groups claiming to be IS, which caused the displacement of nearly 700 000 people, led to an assessment in May 2021 and to the reopening of the mission. The assessment, carried out in the most affected district highlighted needs, particularly in the WASH sector, and the lack of emergency actors. The mission is opening in a complex security and administrative environment, where access will be a major issue.

Solidarites International was one of the first INGO actors to respond to the growing crisis in Cabo Delgado, leading emergency response and distributions in hard-to-reach areas. SI has completed its opening phase, and is planning to scale up and diversify its activities in 2022. A new field base is planned for the first quarter of 2022, and multiple new projects are opening. The Mueda field base will be expanding considerably in the first half of 2022, and the admin manager will be a critical role in this process.
