The Global Center on Adaptation (GCA) works as a solutions broker to accelerate action and support for climate adaptation solutions. We do this in partnership with the public and private sector, locally and internationally, through (I) programs; (II) advocacy and agenda-setting; and (III) research.

Adapting to climate change provides a “win-win” for livelihoods, food security, water supply, health, security, and economic growth. The work of GCA facilitates solutions such as smarter investments, new technologies, and better planning to become more resilient to climate related threats.

GCA is a rapidly growing organization with offices in Abidjan, Beijing, Dhaka, Groningen, and Rotterdam. The HR team is located in Rotterdam.


As HR Officer, you are key in the sustainable growth of GCA. You’re the first person colleagues go to with questions as well as the first person reaching out to candidates. GCA has grown at an enormous rate over the last years, and its success in doing so in the years to come heavily depends on your ability to contribute to a steady foundation. Furthermore, you support the onboarding of new colleagues and the payroll process; are responsible for all HR correspondence and administration; are an expert on our HR systems; and interact with various public local entities such as IND.
