Variety of opportunities
There are a number of ways to get involved in the organisation’s work depending on your interests, availability, skills and career. You will be actively engaged whether you contribute as a volunteer, employee or intern.
Travelling abroad takes planning. For that reason, we assist each expatriate before, during and after their assignment. We handle travel arrangements and administrative formalities and ensures decent living conditions (housing, living expenses for the partner or family, etc.) and, of course, the safety of property and people. After you return, we offer psychological support and assistance with continuing a career in humanitarian work or reentering the labour market in France, particularly with the help of our partner Résonances humanitaires.
Training and career path
Our wide range of projects opens up numerous opportunities for career advancement. All managers are involved in assessing and developing their team members’ potential.

In addition to individual training we also offer group training, which takes place at the various project sites.
