Midwives

Our midwives work in different cultural contexts and have to be able to adapt to the ways of the local community and the reality of the reproductive lives of women there.

The types of projects that we assign to our midwives are very varied: opening a small maternity hospital in a rural setting, establishing a programme to respond to sexual violence problems, attending patients in a hospital in a city, etc. Our midwives work in diverse cultural contexts and in conflict zones. It is therefore necessary to be able to adapt to that specific reality.

Essential requirements:

  • Diploma/degree in nursing, with specialty in obstetric-gynaecological nursing.
  • Minimum of two years’ work experience.
  • Experience in complicated deliveries and perinatal care.
  • Demonstrable experience in family planning and mother-child care.
  • Good level of English and French. Priority will be given to candidates with knowledge of both languages.
  • Minimum availability of 12 months (divided into two missions of six months).
  • User-level IT skills.

Desired requirements:

  • Experience in the field with other NGOs.
  • Knowledge of Arabic, Spanish and/or Portuguese will be valued.
  • Training and/or specialised experience, eg in tropical diseases, public health, etc.

What we offer

  • Preparatory course before leaving to the field.
  • Legal contract for the duration of the mission.
  • The gross basic salary is approximately €1,000 per month during first missions and for positions of lesser responsibility. The salary is regularly reviewed according to the length of time in the organisation and the experience acquired.
  • The chance to develop professionally in an international organisation. A profile manager from the HR department will monitor your professional development (career path, training, etc.) within the organisation.
  • The opportunity to contribute to our objective of saving lives, alleviating suffering and helping those most in need.
