About MAG

MAG (Mines Advisory Group) is an international humanitarian organisation based in Manchester, UK, and working in 32 countries. We remove landmines and unexploded ordnance to release safe and productive land for communities, and work to reduce the threat of armed violence by supporting governments to safely manage weapons and ammunition. In 1997, MAG was a co-recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize for our work campaigning for the Anti-Personnel Mine Ban Convention.


About the Ukraine programme

Since the Russian invasion of 24th February 2022, Ukraine has been subjected to heavy artillery bombardment, missile, and air strikes, as well as the use of landmines and cluster munitions. The scale of the conflict and the use of high impact and indiscriminate weapons requires an urgent and extensive response. MAG responded to the crisis in 2022 and now employs nearly 200 staff in our Ukraine programme, in a range of operational and support/administrative activities with further scale-up planned during 2024. The programme has a representation office in Kyiv, and operational offices in Mykolaiv (also covering accessible areas of Kherson) and now in Kharkiv.


About the role

This role reports to the Country Director (CD) and encompasses a wide range of duties and responsibilities, including managing logistics, procurement, basic financial, and HR services. The Base Manager serves as the primary point of contact for ensuring robust and efficient administration and field coordination. Additionally, this role involves representing MAG in interactions with local authorities, other organizations, and NGOs within the relevant area of operations.


About you

You will have experience working and living overseas, ideally in sensitive conflict or post-conflict environments, with the ability to work independently with minimal supervision. This varied role requires proven experience in implementing and managing logistics, HR, administration, and finance systems.

Our preferred candidate demonstrates a proactive approach, adaptability to address evolving needs, and thrives within a multicultural team environment, exhibiting composure in stressful situations. Proficiency in English is crucial, alongside outstanding communication and interpersonal abilities. You should also be able to demonstrate a track record of fostering constructive relationships with authorities, NGOs, and partners, while effectively overseeing the development and management of national staff teams.
