Current opportunities for international work

As a Red Cross aid worker you’ll join our delegate roster to form part of a global stand-by workforce ready to be deployed whenever emergency situations arise.

Our delegate roster includes a pool of specialist, pre-trained professionals who can be sent overseas at any time to support the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement in its operations.

These operations cover missions in the immediate aftermath of disasters and crises; or ongoing operations in post crisis environments to support recovery and rehabilitation; or working alongside partner National Societies on long term developmental projects.

People on our roster will require specialist skills in areas of need, which can include: clinical and public health professionals, engineers, architects, environmental health professionals, operations managers, and media & communications generalists.

Australian Red Cross accepts applications for international aid workers to join our delegate roster during our annual recruitment round. Our annual recruitment round for 2019 has been finalised.

Some developmental roles are advertised throughout the year as they become available so continue to check this page.

To learn more about what it means to be a delegate, the application process and being employed within the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement visit our international recruitment page.
