Medical Coordinator

Location: Libya (based in Tunis)
Closing date: 31 Mar 2017

Due to the security context, the majority of the humanitarian intervention in Libya are being managed remotely from Tunis.

Due to the security situation, as most of the intervention, this program should be managed remotely from Tunis with potential visit in Libya depending on security clearance. Following the evolution of the context, the remote management could be reduced. Due to this context, a priority should be given to the recruitment and the training of the national staff who would implement the project in the field.

As part of our activities in Libya, we are looking for a Medical Coordinator.

The Medical Coordinator is responsible for the success of the mission’s medical strategy and the quality of current and future medical programmes at the definition, implementation and evaluation phases.

He/She carries out epidemiological monitoring for the country and analyses strengths and weaknesses from the point of view of public health.

Representation: He/She represents the association to partners, authorities and local stakeholders involved in implementing medical programmes.
Human Resources / Training: He/She supervises the medical coordination team (PUI employees), provides support to programme managers for recruiting technical staff and supervises technical training activities on the basis of identified needs. He/She sets up proper process for the remote follow up and supervision of medical staff.
Logistics and Administration: He/She ensures the activities for which he/she is responsible comply with logistical and administrative procedures.
