External Rapid Response Mechanism (RRM) Rosters - UNICEF MENA

External Emergency Roster staff are deployed to support either existing country programs in their emergency response, or to initiate a new program in the crisis zone. Response personnel are also responsible for supporting the transfer of responsibilities and knowledge to the long-term staff to ensure the continuity of UNICEF programming and operations. Our HR database provides qualified pre-screened, potential candidates for humanitarian response.

If you are a committed, creative professional and are passionate about making a lasting difference for children, the world's leading children's rights organization would like to hear from you.

For 70 years, UNICEF has been working on the ground in 190 countries and territories to promote children's survival, protection and development. The world's largest provider of vaccines for developing countries, UNICEF supports child health and nutrition, good water and sanitation, quality basic education for all boys and girls, and the protection of children from violence, exploitation, and AIDS. UNICEF is funded entirely by the voluntary contributions of individuals, businesses, foundations and governments.
