WORK WITH US
My name is Haydn Williams, I’m a project coordinator for one of MSF’s emergency teams.
Just after university, a friend and I drove down the west coast of Africa in a big yellow truck. That was a great trip, and it really gave me this interest and affinity with Africa as a whole, and made me want to explore more of it. It got me hooked.
I worked in agriculture, in the UK and abroad, and then applied to be a logistician with MSF. I’ve been with MSF pretty much ever since. I’m now a project coordinator with the emergency team MSF runs out of Amsterdam.
Project coordinators are responsible for the entire project. They work the medical team leader to look at the needs of the people in the area and make sure the resources are in place to meet them. They manage the security situation, the staffing, the negotiations, and oversee the logistics.
I’m 32 now. My original plan was to manage a large farm somewhere. It’s still a bit of a dream, but maybe one for the future. We’ll see.
