MAG shared the 1997 Nobel Peace Prize as a founding member of the International Campaign to Ban Landmines for our work to ban landmines. Our vision is a safe and secure future for men, women and children affected by armed violence and conflict.

Physical security of weapons and ammunition is a key area of MAG’s work.

You should also have substantial knowledge of the development and evaluation of engineering design and construction contracts, bills of quantities and specifications. In addition, the post-holder will need a professional qualification in construction, engineering or architecture.

Due to the location, fluent French language skills are essential.
