Votre environnement de travail

Action Against Hunger started to intervene in Nigeria in 2010, in response to the high rate of chronic malnutrition in Northern Nigeria and focusing on integrated programming.

In 2011, we grew the operations and implemented nutrition development projects in Jigawa and in Yobe. Following the crises in Northeast Nigeria, we further expanded the activities to address the Nutrition, Health, Food security and livelihoods, WASH, and shelter needs of conflict-affected communities.

In the year 2018, 3.5 million people in Nigeria have been able to receive support from ACF. We do operate in 11 Local Government Areas of Borno, 12 in Yobe and 3 in Jigawa.

Action Against Hunger Nigeria's programs are endorsed by DFID, ECHO, GAC, OFDA, SDC, UNICEF, EU, USAID, AFD, French Ministry of Foreign affairs, SIDA and UNOCHA NHF.

The total budget was amounted of approximately 54 million USD in 2018. ACF Nigeria one of our largest missions as we have more than 600 staff working on the activities.

Apart from the coordination office in Abuja, there are 3 state offices in Damaturu, Maiduguri and Dutse and four sub bases including Monguno, Potiskum, Bade and Damasak.

Today, we are looking for our next Area Coordinator in order to lead the operations, manage and support our team of 200 staff in Borno State.

You will also be responsible for government seconded staff. The projects implemented are a mix of both humanitarian recovery and development programming.

You will manage a base located in the capital where the security context in Borno remains volatile. The capital Maiduguri is relatively stable but there are still risks in some LGAs and travel routes, which make the situation a bit unpredictable.

ACF has implemented strong security management guidelines and protocols, and is constantly updating the existing measures to guide our operations in the state and ensure our duty of care to all staff.
