Vi har behov for flere koordinatorer

Å bidra som koordinator byr på allsidige, innholdsrike og meningsfulle oppgaver.
Hovedansvaret er å lede og koordinere aktivitetene og arbeidet blant Dråpen i Havets mange frivillige på ulike destinasjoner i Hellas.

Koordinatorene ved de forskjellige lokasjonene har noe ulikt ansvar og oppgaver, som f.eks

  • Prosjekt Koordinator med ansvar for alle prosjekter
  • Frivillig Koordinator med ansvar for opplæring og oppfølging av frivillige
  • Logistikk Koordinator med ansvar for vårt lager, drift av market og mottak av donasjoner
  • Site Koordinator som blant annet er administrativt ansvarlig og nærmeste leder til de øvrige koordinatorene.

Blant øvrige oppgaver til koordinatorene, er å koordinere og planlegge innsatsen til de frivillige som består i blant annet distribusjon av mat, klær og nødvendig utstyr, lagerarbeid, aktiviteter for barn, språkundervisning og drift av market (Drop Shop).

Koordinatorene er Dråpen i Havet sine representanter på de ulike destinasjonene, og samarbeider tett med andre humanitære organisasjoner, UNHCR, lokale myndigheter mv.

Bakgrunn fra humanitært hjelpearbeid, primært fra kriserammede områder er en stor fordel i rollen som koordinator. Solid erfaring fra prosjektarbeid og ledelse er en forutsetning for å bli vurdert til en koordinator rolle. Krevende og hektiske arbeidsdager betyr at det er viktig å ha god helse, svært gode kommunikasjonsevner, serviceinnstilling og allsidige datakunnskaper. Det er en forutsetning at koordinatorene behersker engelsk flytende.

Koordinatorer for Dråpen i Havet reiser på eget ansvar, og vi ønsker en minimums oppdragslengde på 3 måneder. For Site Koordinator, er det en forutsetning at man har mulighet til å bidra i minst 5 måneder sammenhengende. Dråpen i Havet dekker reisekostnader, bosted og leiebil på destinasjonen. I tillegg har koordinatorer mulighet til å søke om økonomisk støtte til å dekke sine personlige utgifter under oppholdet.

Som for øvrige frivillige, gjelder at man er over 25 år for å bli vurdert til en rolle som koordinator.
Om du ønsker å melde din interesse for et frivillig koordinatoroppdrag, send din CV sammen med en søknad til birgit@drapenihavet.no og fortell når du har mulighet til å bidra, og hvor lenge du kan være i Hellas.
