Our emergency teams are on the ground responding to the ever-increasing needs. We target those who have been forced to flee with our activities, from building shelters to tackling agricultural challenges, and enabling them to acquire new skills that can increase their resilience to shocks in the future.

We are looking for people who are passionate about helping refugees and people forced to flee. Are you one of those people? If you are, NRC offers you the opportunity to:

  • Do demanding and professional work, often in challenging contexts.
