Living conditions :
Teknaf is a small town in Bangladesh counting more than 150,000 inhabitants and offering minimum services (local restaurants, local shops ) and nice beaches. No other INGOs are in Teknaf, except ACF, but it is close to Cox s Bazar (2h/2h30 by car), where many INGOs and UN agencies are there. Cox s Bazar is one of the touristic cities of Bangladesh and easily accessible from Dhaka (half day trip including internal flight).
Teknaf base offered minimal but good comfort (electricity, water, internet by a USB Key). The Guest House is close to the Office. Despite possibilities for time to time leisure periods in Dhaka, the restriction of movements due to security reasons and the absence of permanent international presence from other organizations make it a project-focused humanitarian assignment.
On an overall point of view, this assignment will allow the PM to fulfill core humanitarian objectives, providing most-needed services to non-conflicting local populations with the support of dedicated SI national staff at base and coordination levels. The programs run by SI during these last years in Teknaf have always been benefiting from a strong support by ECHO and BPRM. The completion of the activities in the timeframe defined with donors stands as a rewarding challenge that will be shared with local national colleagues, the coordination and the HQ.
SI will offer you:
A salaried post: according to experience from 2000 euros gross per month, plus 10% annual leave allowance paid monthly and a monthly Per Diem of 500 USD.
Social and medical cover: Expatriates benefit from an insurance package which reimburses all healthcare expenses (including medical and surgical expenses, dental care and ophthalmological expenses, repatriation) and a welfare system including war risks. Essential vaccination and antimalarial treatment costs are refunded.
Vacation: During the assignment, a system of alternation between work and time off is implemented at the rate of one break every three months. For a one-year assignment, the expatriate will have a 7-day break during the 3rd and the 9th month (with 500 euros allocated by Solidarit s). He or she will also be entitled to go back to his or her home country for a 14-day period after six months spent on the mission (Solidarit s will cover travel costs)
