TGH recruits 01 Head of Logistics Chad (English- speaking)

TGH background

« A player in sustainable, shared solidarity ».

Founded in 1994, TGH is a French association for international solidarity based in Lyon. It designs and implements emergency, rehabilitation and development programmes in the fields of water, hygiene and sanitation, food security and rural development, socio-education and psychosocial support. TGH is currently active in 10 countries in Africa, Europe and Asia.

Presentation of TGH’s work in Chad and Sudan

TGH has a long-standing presence in Sudan: first implementing a multi-sectoral program targeting displaced people and host communities in Geneina (West Darfur) in 2004, it soon extended its presence to Central Darfur (Bindizi and Um Dukhun in 2005 and 2006 respectively). Since then, TGH has maintained a continuous presence in both states, despite an increasingly complex context. TGH has also intervened for shorter periods in Khartoum (2004-2005), Gedaref State (2012) and South Kordofan (from 2020 to August 2022).

In Sudan, TGH has more than 50 national staff in the field, and is currently recruiting more, based in the NGO’s offices in Golo, Um Dukhun, Geneina, Port Sudan and Medani.

This extensive presence enables us to understand the context and continuously monitor the evolution of humanitarian needs and identify priorities for action. Mobile and coordination staff complete the team. They were based in Khartoum before the war and are now in Port Sudan and Chad.

Since the outbreak of the conflict in April 2023, TGH has developed multi-sectoral projects in consortium with other international NGOs to meet the needs of crisis-affected populations in Darfur, Khartoum and Jazeera states.

As part of its ongoing support for the victims of the Sudanese crisis, and aware of the interdependence of the Sudanese and Chadian contexts, TGH has been registered in Chad since November 2023, where more than 450,000 displaced people have found refuge, notably from Darfur, as well as around 100,000 Chadian returnees. TGH intends to set up multi-sectoral projects (notably in Water, Hygiene and Sanitation and Protection) to meet the needs of displaced people on the Sudan-Chad border in the Ouaddaï and Wadi-Fira provinces.

TGH’s support and coordination teams in Chad therefore work in close collaboration with TGH mission in Sudan, given the interdependence of the contexts and the nature of the activities (e.g. cross-border activities).

Job description

The Head of Logistics works under the responsibility of the Country Director and in close collaboration with the Sudan Logistics Coordinator.

As the Chad mission recently opened, the Head of logistics will have to open and structure the Chad logistics department in N’Djaména.

Safety, working and living conditions

TGH’s guesthouse in N’Djaména is currently housed in a building comprising several apartments, many of which are rented by other international NGOs and UN agencies. In the field, living conditions are more rudimentary. The current situation in Chad/Sudan may lead to a temporary tightening of security procedures (movement restrictions, etc.). There are regular flights to and from Chad to regional destinations and expatriates are entitled to rest periods every 3 months.

The Head of Logistics will strictly follow the TGH security plan according to the place of assignment. As the context is unpredictable, TGH will take all necessary precautions to ensure safety and decent working and living conditions without putting the team at risk.
