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.

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.
