Ce message ne concerne pas les infirmiers ayant une expérience significative en néonatologie, très recherchés pour nos programmes.

Il en est de même pour les logisticiens généralistes (délai d'attente environ 10 mois). Nous vous conseillons donc de postuler dans quelques mois. Ce message ne s'adresse pas aux logisticiens spécialisés (EHA, construction, mécanicien…) NB : logisticiens EHA expérimentés MSF ou autre ONG très recherchés en ce moment.

Enfin, nos besoins concernant les postes de chargés de communication sont satisfaits pour l'année 2018. Pour ces postes, il est donc demandé aux candidats de ne postuler qu'à compter d'octobre/novembre 2018.
