We are currently seeking a Programme Support Coordinator to provide support to MAG’s lifesaving programmes in the Middle East. Reporting to our Regional Programmes Manager, and working closely with a Regional Director, you will act as the focal point for a challenging portfolio of international programmes in the Middle East. The role incorporates key aspects of developing and supporting projects, including grant management, proposal development and reporting and internal stakeholder engagement, providing the opportunity to test your skills in a truly international role.
The successful candidate will be an enthusiastic self-starter with experience of developing and supporting programmes, ideally including experience of working with a wide range of institutional donors. Excellent planning and organisational skills are essential, with the ability to prioritise a busy and varied workload. Strong verbal and written communication skills are also essential for this role. With excellent project management and interpersonal skills, you will be creative, flexible, solution-focused, professional and committed to MAG's goals. Experience of working overseas and particularly in the Middle East would be beneficial.
Experience and understanding of technical issues relating to mine clearance are not necessary for this post; more important is your commitment to international humanitarian and capacity building principles. The role will be based in Manchester and will involve a high level of overseas travel to the Middle East, possibly at short notice.
