Regional Funding Coordinator Latin America (f/m/d)

2 Years Contract (with possible extension)

Organisation Description

Johanniter-Unfall-Hilfe e.V. ( is a German Christian non-governmental organisation, dedicated to excellence in the field of first aid, ambulance service, social service programmes and other projects in the medical and social field. The Federal Headquarter is in Berlin, Germany. Johanniter International Assistance is the operational unit for humanitarian aid, development co-operation and emergency relief, implementing and supporting projects in Health, Nutrition, WASH as well as Food Se-curity & Income Generation worldwide.

Responding to fast-paced changes in the international aid fabric, JIA decided to establish a regional Hub Model in order to closely connect programme support and quality to programmes and operations on the ground. The Hub Model aims to shift responsibility from the Head Office to the Hub with increased responsi-bilities to deliver on the overall Johanniter 2027 Strategy. This strategy aims very much at increased deci-sion-making, accountability at country, regional level and takes steps to move the organisation forward on the global localisation agenda. We are looking for a leader, who can help shift paradigms on how JIA works in both local and regional contexts as well as develops strong regional links and networks leading to strate-gic resource mobilisation.
