Concern Worldwide has charity job opportunities in its offices around the world. We're looking for skilled staff who are committed to working towards a common goal.
Working with Concern
Areas of expertise
Concern employees share a common goal, helping people living in extreme poverty achieve major improvements in their lives. They do this by providing vital work in the areas of health, livelihoods, HIV and AIDS, emergencies and education. We also employ support staff to maintain our fundraising, financial, HR, IT and logistics systems.
Concern aims to ensure that all its employees are valued for their contribution and are given the opportunity to realise their full potential within the organisation.
We believe in working directly with local people, in partnership with local bodies and other international agencies. We aim to develop people's potential in the countries that we operate. In as far as possible, we try to recruit local people to fulfill our staffing needs. At present, 87% of our personnel working overseas are local people, living and working in their own country.
Wherever possible, Concern employs people from the countries in which we work. As well, our overseas volunteers generally require some previous experience or relevant qualifications.
EU Aid Volunteer Initiative
Concern is delighted to have been successful in securing funding through the EU Aid Volunteer Initiative to deploy EU Aid Volunteers in 2016. We look forward to working with the EU on this exciting project and will post more details here as they become available.
