The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) provides protection and assistance to millions of people affected by armed conflict and violence across the world and works in some of the hardest to reach war torn places on earth. To ensure that vulnerable people receive the support they need, the ICRC raises more than a billion dollars annually from generous private individuals, governments, National Red Crescent and Red Cross Societies, foundations and corporations, to support its work.

If you can demonstrate your success in this field and are interested to join a motivated, fun and high performing team that spans the Gulf Region and works closely with the ICRC Headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland then we would love to hear from you.
