GCF4-ICRC-logo-150x150pxFor the 3rd time this year the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) will be part of the Global Careers Fair. The ICRC is an impartial, neutral and independent organisation whose exclusively humanitarian mission is to protect the lives and dignity of victims of armed conflict and other situations of violence and to provide them with assistance. Based in Geneva, the organisation works to ensure humanitarian protection and assistance for victims of war and armed violence. It takes action in response to emergencies and at the same time promotes respect for international humanitarian law and its implementation in national law. Present in 80 countries across five countries, the ICRC employs over 12,000 local employees coordinated by around 800 staff at headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland. Every year, the ICRC recruits a high volume of people to fill a broad range of positions, at all levels (Internships, Recent graduates, Experienced hires, Technical positions,…). At the end of June, the ICRC will be promoting various new positions. So if you want to have a chance to meet them and join the organisation, sign up now for the next Global Careers Fair on 22-23 October 2014.
