Postes à pourvoir


Our coordination team is made of long-term volunteers, which requires a different recruitment process.

We look for volunteers who would be willing to stay at least 6 months on the team so they can fully grasp the system of our NGO and insure a follow-up with the volunteers they manage. We try and support those volunteers with living expenses reimbursement up to 500€ (covered expenses include groceries and accommodation within the limit previously mentioned). We can also organize accommodation in one of our shared houses.

Coordinators are still on the field and work closely all together to insure the smooth run of MET but also our relations with other NGOs on Samos.
