We are looking for a coordinator for our Mozambique project 2022-2023


The four-year development cooperation project of HYY and the Mozambican non-governmental organisation Associação PROGRESSO focuses on supporting the schooling of girls in their final years of comprehensive school and disabled youth as well as preventing them from dropping out of school. The project is carried out in the city of Pemba in northern Mozambique. We are now looking for a coordinator for the project.


The project is realised as HYY’s own development cooperation project and lasts until spring 2023.


The position is a position of trust, which means that no salary is paid. However, the coordinator receives 1,500 euros as remuneration for their work. The coordinator is assisted in their duties by a project group comprised of volunteers which is expected to report on their activities to HYY’s Development Cooperation Committee. The duties take place both during office hours and in the evening. Good coordination skills and experience of working on the project are considered as advantages to the applicants. The selected coordinator is further expected to:

  • Organise the meetings of the Mozambique project group and distribute tasks to its members (the activities are often international, and the group thus frequently works in English)
  • Keep in contact with our Mozambican cooperation organisation Progresso (in Portuguese)
  • Participate in the meetings of the Development Cooperation Committee
  • Plan possible project trips in cooperation with the project group
  • Cooperate with HYY’s Board on the project
  • Monitor and manage the project’s finances in cooperation with HYY’s chief financial and service officer


Please send your applications by email to hallinto@hyy.fi by 11.59 pm on 7 September. If needed, the applicants will be interviewed on Monday 12 September, and our goal is to select the new coordinator in a meeting of HYY’s Board on 14 September 2022.

HYY emphasises diversity and equality in our activities. We hope to receive as many applications as possible from people with diverse backgrounds. We use anonymous recruitment in the first stage of the application process.
