International network coordinator (M/F)


MdM is an international network comprised of 17 autonomous national organisations (“chapters”). The main goal of the MdM international governance is to enable a strong international presence, increasing our impact on global issues through local and international operations and evidence-based advocacy. The distribution of responsibilities should be stable and systematic, generating collaboration and safeguarding the collective ownership of a continuously learning and evolving process. Leaders throughout the network should contribute to a culture of respect, openness and mutual support on both joint and collective programmes and strategies.

We are looking for an organised, flexible, and personable individual with strong project management and budget management skills.
