Current opportunities for international work

Delegates are part of a global standby workforce ready to respond to the needs of people impacted by natural disasters, health crises or conflict, in partnership with the Red Cross Movement.

Our Delegate register includes a pool of pre-trained and specialist professionals who can be deployed overseas at any time to support the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement in its operations.

These operations can cover deployments in:

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

Delegates on our register require specialist skills which can include: clinical and public health professionals, engineers, architects, protection, gender and inclusion professionals, operations managers, and media and communications generalists.

Australian Red Cross accepts applications for international aid workers to join our delegate register periodically throughout the year. The specific job profiles we recruit for vary depending on the needs of the Red Cross Movement and identified skills gaps on our Register. Australian Red Cross maintains a register containing the technical professions, but we only recruit to those where we have an identified gap.

Some developmental roles are advertised throughout the year as they become available.
