In return, we can offer a large degree of autonomy and flexibility for you to shape the role, develop, learn and grow professionally. We are a committed, friendly and collaborative team, and the role offers a wealth of opportunities to learn about humanitarian innovation and work with partners from across a range of countries and professional backgrounds.
