In Nigeria, GIZ's portfolio includes among others, a programme to support the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) in its regional integration goals.

We are recruiting to fill the position of:

Job Title: Infrastructure Coordinator

Vacancy No: 084
Location: Abuja / Maiduguri - Borno with frequent travels to the intervention zone of the project (MMC; Southern Borno, Mubi North & South LGA, Maiha LGA).
Organization: GIZ, Resilience


  • As a service provider in the field of international cooperation for sustainable development and international education work, we are dedicated to shaping a future worth living around the world. GIZ has over 50 years of experience in a wide variety of areas, including economic development and employment promotion, energy and the environment, and peace and security. The diverse expertise of our federal enterprise is in demand around the globe - from the German Government, European Union institutions, the United Nations, the private sector and governments of other countries.
  • We work with businesses, civil society actors and research institutions, fostering successful interaction between development policy and other policy fields and areas of activity. Our main commissioning party is the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). The registered offices of GIZ are in Bonn and Eschborn. Our approximately 23,500 employees, almost 70 percent of whom are national personnel, work in a round 120 countries (July 2020)
  • GIZ has worked in Nigeria since 1974. From 2004, GIZ has maintained a country office in the capital city Abuja. Currently 361 national and 66 international employees, 19 regional staff, 4 integrated specialists and 3 development workers are working in the country (June 2020).

The Programme

  • Since 2009, Nigeria has been the scene of attacks by Boko Haram against the population. Particularly, the north-east of the country is affected by destruction and displacement. More than 20,000 people have been killed and about 2.2 million people are displaced from their communities.
  • In the context of Germany's commitment to "fight causes for displacement – stabilize host communities - support refugees", GIZ is implementing the project “Support to the internally displaced and resilience of host communities in the north and north-east of Nigeria”, which is financed by the BMZ and the EU. The project is in line with the EU action plan against refugee crises and with the national indicative programme of the 11th European Development Fund.
    The project’s purpose is to improve the living conditions of internally displaced persons (IDP), the population in host communities and of IDPs returning to their communities of origin in north-eastern Nigeria.
  • The project focuses geographically on Adamawa and Borno States in north-eastern Nigeria where an estimated number of 5 million people needs support. With its measures of rehabilitation and development, the project is complementary to humanitarian assistance which is provided by other actors. The planned interventions are closely coordinated and harmonized with other donors and stakeholders.
  • The project will be active predominantly in informal IDP camps and host communities and communities of origin of IDPs. It promotes the linkage of rehabilitation and development. The aims of the project are to stabilize living conditions in the IDP population and population of host communities, allow the resumption of social and economic life of IDPs while they return to their communities of origin as well as the rehabilitation and reconstruction of these communities. Access to formal and non-formal education, to health services, to energy, water and sanitation, the rehabilitation of road and other built infrastructure, the recapitalization of destroyed agricultural production materials, social transfers (cash transfers) and the revival of local economy are examples for areas of intervention. For the rehabilitation and reconstruction in communities of origin, the project will apply a community based and participative approach to draft community development plans.
