NRC directly assisted over 70,000 refugees and migrants, working together with the Greek authorities, humanitarian actors and volunteers to set up and maintain a dignified and efficient flow of refugees from arrival at the beach, via registration and reception facilities, to departure by boat or plane to mainland Greece. NRC Thessaloniki is now looking forward to cover the position of the Camp Management Coordinators to respond to the humanitarian needs.

The purpose of the Camp Management position is to support the manager with all operational aspects of the project. NRC is looking to fill two vacancies one for the in-camp response and one for the urban response project.
