Job Profile

Mott MacDonald is committed to improving people’s lives through creating and delivering tailored development solutions.

We work in developing countries to alleviate poverty, establish good governance, and increase access, capacity and resilience in healthcare, education, water, sanitation, transportation, infrastructure and renewable energy – while safeguarding the environment and promoting human rights and gender equity.

The Programme will operate across Gorkha, Dhading, Nuwakot and Rasuwa, with the main office in Kathmandu.

The Senior Administrator is responsible for ensuring that all administrative aspects of Purnima run effectively. S/he will be based in the Mott MacDonald Sanepa Office, with travel to District offices as required.
