Emergency Coordinator - Syria

The total salary package for this position is £33,384 - £36,972 GBP (approximately $52,120 - $57,724 USD) including basic salary and a cost of living allowance.  

Fixed Term - 3 months

Over recent months, MAG has provided risk education to displaced populations around Syria and intends to develop this work over forthcoming months. We are therefore seeking an Emergency Coordinator to provide effective coordination and representation for MAG in response to the Syrian crisis. In conjunction with the Programmes Department at MAG HQ and existing MAG programmes in the region, the post-holder will be responsible for developing a country strategy for Syria.

Reporting to the Regional Programmes Manager at MAG HQ, the successful candidate will be required to travel extensively within the region including to Jordan, Turkey and to existing MAG programmes in the Middle East. Responsibilities will include gathering, analysing and sharing information and from this, identifying potential opportunities for future MAG intervention. This will involve research and developing relationships with key stakeholders in the region, including donors, government bodies, other NGOs and local partners.  

 You will therefore need experience of working overseas on emergency response projects and be willing to travel extensively and at short notice. The successful candidate should also have experience in security management in emergency environments, with the flexibility to operate in unpredictable and remote environments.

Due to the nature of this project, candidates are encouraged to apply as soon as possible and shortlisting will take place as applications are received.


The total salary package for this position is £33,384 - £36,972 GBP (approximately $52,120 - $57,724 USD) including basic salary and a cost of living allowance. Please see the general information for additional terms and conditions.
