The candidate will be accommodated in SI guesthouse in Amman as main location.

Living conditions in Amman are very good and staff has access to a wide range of restaurants, cafes and bars. Most of occidental products (food, clothing…) are easily accessible in Amman. The country also proposes several destinations for weekends.

Security levels are good and restrictions are very limited.



Accommodation in the guesthouse in Aden will be provided during the required mission visits.

The living conditions in Aden are quite good even though movements are very restricted (curfew at 8 pm, most of the city being considered as no-go or restricted areas). We are able to go to one supermarket, one restaurant and one beach under specific conditions. Social life with expats from other NGOs is low but can be developed. House is almost four stars’ comfort! Trips to bases is ok and to the field is possible for expatriates under certain conditions but are limited to keep the presence of international staff low profile. Women expatriates have to wear the niqab every time they go out the office.
