Recruitment Challenges of 2022 and Trends for 2023 | Invitation to a Webinar

The International Rescue Committee (IRC) is among the world’s leading humanitarian relief and development organizations.

For 80 years, the IRC has been at the forefront of every major humanitarian initiative to assist people uprooted by war, persecution, or civil conflict. IRC staff go to the toughest places on the planet, implement both immediate response and long-lasting programs, and conduct the type of applied research and advocacy that the aid community needs to continually push itself to find better solutions for people.

The IRC partners with local governments and others to improve people’s health, education, safety, power and economic well-being. The IRC is operational in more than 40 countries and maintains more than 20 offices across the US with an annual portfolio of US$1.5 billion.

Whether you’re just starting out as an expert in the field of international development or are an experienced professional looking to expand your career opportunities, our webinar will walk you through exactly how the IRC and other international agencies recruit talent for their projects and teams.
