Bucaramanga, Santander About the mission Desired start date: 01/06/2020

Duration of the mission: 11 months

Location: Colombia, Bucaramanga

The present position is open to national and international staff

Brief overview of Solidarités Internationals work in the country:

Solidarités International is operational in Colombia since October 2019. The mission is currently working on reinforcing WASH conditions in the shelters (refugios) along the route between Cucuta and Bucaramanga. Venezuelans are walking along this route aiming at reaching one of Colombias major cities or a third country. They are very vulnerable at this stage and SI plans, together with PUI, to reinforce access to basic services along the route,
particularly in the shelters managed by local organizations.

How the mission is organised:

The mission is currently limited in size and its footprint in only 4 refugios. The upcoming project will drastically increase the operational/financial and HR volume of the mission. The operations are managed from Bucaramanga and a small coordination structure will be created in Bogota.

The base should grow up around 35 national staffs and 3 international staff.

Specific context of the area in which the expatriate will be working:

The security context is stable in this part of Colombia. Besides usual criminal risks (existing in the country generally), the social context is tense with some of the local communities that feel pressured by arrival of Venezuelans and those who help them. This balance and necessary dialogue is a key to understand the context dynamics and adapt the response to Venezuelans needs but also to local communities perceptions and vulnerabilities. The context of living in Bucaramanga is good and leaves the expatriate with few restrictions. The program being multisectoral and implemented with several partners (PUI and local organizations), the coordination is key.
