We are searching for an experienced Field Coordinator to take a key role in the InterVolve team in working alongside the community at Softex Camp, Thessaloniki, Northern Greece

Closing Date for Applications: 25th June 2017

 InterVolve is a Greek, Non Profit Organisation taking grassroots action to facilitate basic human rights for refugees, migrants and vulnerable populations in Northern Greece. We fill gaps and offer resources and support. Since 2015, we have been fortunate to have had dedicated volunteers working alongside refugee communities in camps, and on urban projects. We are seeking new team members to help us keep our established programme of activities running.

 Softex camp has been open since May 2016, and we have been present there with the community since that date.  The population currently stands at around 450 people from diverse backgrounds. Most of the population live in “caravans”. The site is isolated in an industrial area a ten minute drive to the west of Thessaloniki city. By working alongside community members for over a year we have established a good understanding of the community and a relationship of trust and collaboration with the residents.

 We work alongside community members to offer a programme of Education, responsive Community, Crafts, Cultural and Sports activities and to deliver regular distributions of food, non food items through our boutique and door to door distribution programme. We work in collaboration with all actors on site.

 The Role 

  • Managing, inducting and supporting our volunteer team
  • Managing food and NFI distribution systems
  • Accounting for effective use of resources
  • Leading on Monitoring and Evaluation of projects
  • Ensuring safe and legal working practices
  • Working alongside our logistics manager, and a co-field coordinator to ensure a consistent quality programme of activities and to develop responses to changing needs on camp
  • Liaison with other actors on site
  • Contributing to the wider work of the InterVolve Team
  • Supporting ongoing community activities and events as requested
  • Working with our director to manage and plan finance
  • Leading by example in upholding InterVolve’s Values and Code of Conduct, and Softex procedural guidance
  • Attending meetings as required (e.g. site coordination meetings, field coordination meetings etc)
  • Working 6 days a week (daily except Saturday)

  • Experience of managing and supporting volunteers

  • Flexibility, resilience, and a calm constructive demeanour
  • Experience of working safely alongside communities to develop projects or services
  • Ability to provide and receive constructive criticism, in order to achieve the best possible team, and the best possible outcomes for residents at camp
  • Ability to legally drive a vehicle in Greece (preferably manual)

  • Understanding of Laws and protection structures relating to refugees and migrants in Greece

 Personal Attributes: You should be prepared to be working within the dynamics of a small team (around ten volunteers) from a warehouse adjoining the camp, and within a developing volunteer organisation.

Your Commitment: We are looking for people who are able to commit to a minimum of three months in the first instance.

 Our Commitment:  Support and induction training will be given and for long term volunteers we may be able to offer accommodation and a stipend. We are currently working hard to build new ways to support volunteers and ensure they are able to contribute to the best of their potential whilst maintaining wellbeing.
