Mobile Info Team is determined to work towards a future where asylum seekers and refugees in Greece have fair access to asylum and are treated with the respect their humanity deserves. We assist families and individual asylum seekers by providing dedicated, long-term support during their asylum and family reunification cases. We research legal and political developments relevant to migrants in Greece and Europe and disseminate information through our daily hotline and Facebook page (www.facebook.com/mobileinfoteam). We attend community centres and refugee camps to provide up to date information on the asylum process. We also provide advocacy at different levels, including collecting testimonies on human rights abuses such as illegal push backs.

This is an excellent opportunity to help manage a well established team who have been providing support in Northern Greece for over 4 years. You will become the centre of the team and will be highly influential in the direction the organisation takes.

What we are looking for:  

A proactive, enthusiastic, strategic supporter of social justice that has experience in project management, coordination and on-the-ground humanitarian/NGO service delivery in the refugee sector.

The coordinator is responsible for seeing the ‘big picture’ of the team’s overall operations and making sure that everyone is working in harmony to achieve this goal. To this end, the coordinator should be an effective communicator in order to check-in with each team member, integrate this into the overall ethos of the team, and help facilitate communication between us all. This requires making support available and becoming a point of reference for not only the volunteers, but also for the director, advocacy officer, and external partners. It is also essential for the coordinator to have the initiative to develop systems and procedures to standardize MIT’s internal processes.
