International Committee of the Red Cross

The ICRC hires professional staff with a strong humanitarian motivation for roles in over 80 countries to help people affected by armed conflict and other violence. Established in 1863, the ICRC works worldwide to provide humanitarian help for people affected by conflict and armed violence and to promote the laws that protect victims of war. An independent and neutral organization, its mandate stems essentially from the Geneva Conventions of 1949. It takes action in response to emergencies and promotes respect for international humanitarian law and its implementation in national law.
