Human Resources



Médecins Sans Frontières is an international independent medical-humanitarian organization, which offers assistance to populations in distress, to victims of natural or man-made disasters and to victims of armed conflict, without discrimination and irrespective of race, religion, creed, or political affiliation.


MSF is a civil society initiative that brings together individuals committed to the assistance of other human beings in crisis. As such MSF is by choice an association.

Each individual working with MSF does it out of conviction and is ready to uphold the values and principles of MSF.


The MSF movement is built around six operational directorates. MSF OCBA is one of those directorates. The operations are implemented by field teams and the mission coordination teams; together with the organizational units based in Barcelona and decentralized in Nairobi, Dakar, and Amman. The field operations are guided and supported by 5 Operational Cells, the Emergency Unit and other departments supporting operations, including the HR Department.


Since June 2021, Tembo started a process of scale up across the Operational Centers (OCs) and the movement. The fundamental objective is to create access and inclusion to all our staff worldwide (more than 63K people, and across OCs a cumulative of +120 missions worldwide).


At date, the team has already managed to reach approx. 30% of the global MSF population with +21K staff being registered as unique users´ activity in the past 12 months.

The global scale up pursue to reach the remaining 70%, through the creation of a self-sustainable and organic growth, grounded in systemic positioning OC-specific of Tembo (e.g., being absorbed in processes / procedures). 

This position will be  a referent and strategic adviser in learner-centered field operations, and will support all Tembo teams and relevant MSF OCs stakeholders, in the  efforts towards the  creation and/or improvement of  the needed  environment  that  should enable all MSF OCs and entities to make progress on making accessible an effective and efficient digital learning adapted and oriented towards those MSF staff (potential learners / end-users) with  limited and inequitable access to effective learning opportunities and support, to better contribute to MSF operations and MSF mission.
