About the job:

As a Remuneration Analyst you are required to conduct a salary study and market analysis in order to obtain better insight into common market practices in MSF mission countries. You will conduct the salary study in the requested location(s) of a defined reference market by contacting various actors from the NGO, private and public sector. The survey is a thorough analysis of the market trends and practices on all elements concerning the employer-employee contractual relationship and requires detailed consideration of these. Undertaking such an analysis requires understanding the local labour law, practices that are considered common law, and the political and cultural variables that may affect the labour market. The study also assesses the cost of living via a secondary Monthly Household Expenditures Survey by collecting average familial expenses required to maintain a decent standard of living.
