Project coordinators and all other positions work where the projects are located, generally in rural areas. Please see our field organisational chart for more information.
Before applying, you should be sure that you really want to work and live in the field.

You will be asked to observe certain security rules and your freedom of movement may sometimes be restricted.
You will work with people from different countries and cultures and at times you will share your working and living space. It is important to bear in mind that the context of projects, and even your job, can suddenly change, which means that flexibility and adaptability are vital.
