Field Selection and Orientation (ROC)

Field Selection and Orientation (ROC)

Medair runs a special orientation and evaluation course for all prospective staff called the ROC: the Relief and Recovery Orientation Course. 

At the ROC, you will experience the challenges of working in the humanitarian sector through practical, heart-pounding simulations. You will work on your own and in teams, and you will get to know all about Medair’s values, projects, and country programmes.

The ROC is an invaluable introduction to Medair for both new and experienced relief workers.

You will use the ROC to evaluate whether you think a humanitarian career with Medair is a good fit for you, and we will evaluate your suitability for a field career with us.

If you successfully complete the ROC, you may be asked to commit to a field programme immediately, or you may have to wait for several months while we match your expertise to the most appropriate field position.

The majority of participants successfully complete the ROC and begin a career with Medair.

Everyone who works for Medair in the field attends the ROC. No one ever forgets it.
