International aid work jobs & careers

Build your humanitarian career at Red Cross.

Aid workers are normal people doing extraordinary things in the most vulnerable regions of the world.

When natural disasters strike or conflict breaks out, our International aid workers (known as delegates) are ready to be deployed no matter when or where emergency situations arise. Australian Red Cross delegates also play a major role in long-term development by supporting and complementing the work of our partner National Societies.

Australian Red Cross is actively recruiting delegates to be part of this global standby workforce.

Are you ready to be a delegate?

Delegates work alongside our National Society partners and must respect and adapt to different cultures and work styles. You could face highly challenging environments, including disaster and conflict zones, where you must be able to operate and thrive.
