International Rescue Committee Vacancy

The International Rescue Committee (IRC) assists individuals whose lives and livelihoods have been devastated by conflict and disaster to survive, recover, and take charge of their future. Established in 1933 at the behest of Albert Einstein, the IRC collaborates with individuals forced to flee from conflict, war, and disaster, as well as the communities that support them, including those who remain in their homes and communities. Operating in over 40 countries and 22 U.S. cities, we restore security, dignity, and hope to millions who are displaced and struggling to endure. The IRC leads the path from harm to home. Our work began in Ethiopia in 1999 in response to a severe drought in the Somali region.
