Why work with us?

In an ever-changing world, Relief International’s work as a humanitarian and development organization is more important than ever. The fragile settings where we operate are marked by recurrent man-made or natural crises that impede human development. It’s not our style to parachute in, distribute supplies, and depart for the next crisis. The fragile communities where we work require our long-term commitment.

Relief International has worked continuously for a decade or more in 11 of the 16 fragile settings where we operate. Our long-standing history in these countries is part of why we are well-respected and trusted by members of the local population, peer organizations, and governments. That’s why we’re not looking for just employees. We’re looking for partners.

Relief International offers opportunities for professionals at all levels of their careers. Whether you work in the field, finance, operations, human resources, program management, communications, or another area, you’ll be a significant part of carrying these relationships forward so that we can continue to deliver relief and development where it’s needed most.
