Contract type:  Open-ended contract

What we do


The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) works worldwide to provide humanitarian assistance to people affected by conflict and armed violence. We take action in response to emergencies and at the same time promote respect for international humanitarian law. We are an independent and neutral organization, and our mandate stems essentially from the Geneva Conventions of 1949. We work closely with National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and with their International Federation in order to ensure a concerted, rational and rapid humanitarian response to the needs of the victims of armed conflict or any other situation of internal violence. We direct and coordinate the international activities conducted in these situations. 


The Resource Mobilization Division (REM) manages the institutional relationship between ICRC and its various donors. A new ICRC Resource Mobilization Strategy 2020 – 2030 has been validated in December 2020 and the budget to launch the related transformation program called “SIP” (Resource Mobilization Strategy’s Implementation Plan) has been approved in March 2021. It aims to guide fundraising efforts at the ICRC by establishing five strategic orientations that seek to address challenges identified today and prepare fundraising at the ICRC to be fit for purpose in the future.
