INSO Mali Country Office:
INSO Burkina Faso is now in its opening phase, with a new office to be opened in Dori. Operations in Burkina Faso will be under the supervision and in a joint program with INSO Mali, to propose a regional response to the Sahel Crisis.

Safety Advisor positions are highly rewarding roles, offering a unique opportunity to work in a close-knit team giving security analysis and advice that is not only some of the best of its kind, but that is also vital to the efforts of the NGO community to deliver aid and assistance to the thousands of people who need it. Successful candidates will be outgoing and resilient, with the ability to analyse complex security issues and contexts, give sound practical safety and security advice, communicate to an excellent standard of French both verbally and in writing, and above all else share INSO’s commitment to humanitarian principles.

Frequent travels and flexibility in adjusting to different regional teams and situations are key requirements of this post.
