Today, there are more refugees, asylum seekers and displaced people worldwide than at any time since World War II. That’s more than 65 million people forced to flee their homes to escape conflict and disaster.

It’s a terrible injustice. And one that we can, and must, overcome.

We believe that when people all over the world work together, big changes really are possible. That’s why we’ve made it our mission to act in partnership with other passionate people, like you, across the globe to achieve safety, justice and dignity in communities threatened by conflict and disaster. We don’t think there’s any task more important.

Since 1949 our supporters have provided food, shelter, education, healthcare and training to help the world’s most vulnerable prepare for, cope with and recover from crisis.

Together we’re tackling the root causes of injustice, and are building a brighter future for everyone. We hope that you’ll join us in this vital mission.

The purpose of the International Program Officer (IPO) position is to provide project-level administration and support to the Partnership and Programs Department to help achieve safety, justice and dignity in communities threatened by conflicts, disasters and displacement. The IPO achieves this purpose through support to the program management cycle, especially in reviewing and editing annual reports, fulfilling internal compliance requirements, data entry for monitoring and evaluation of programs, and supporting development of funding proposals.
