A word from the manager« The very first activities implemented by PUI in the country were in South Lebanon more than 20 years ago. The current Field Coordinator will have completed 3 years of contract on this position and many national colleagues have been with us for 10+ years. The context is complex but fascinating due to the constant shift in the political, economic, social and security environment. With a base portfolio above 5 million annually and 5 sectors of intervention, this position is a great opportunity for an experienced Field Coordinator to further develop their management and leadership skills. »
