If hired as an Internationally Recruited Staff (IRS), you will join a team of committed Christians. You will live, work, and pray together in our faith-based team settings.
So, just as your values are at the core of everything you do, at Medair, Christian faith is at the core of everything we do. We are motivated to care for those who suffer because we follow Jesus Christ, who taught us to love God and to care for those in need.
At Medair our highest goal is to honour God through who we are and what we do – shown by our desire to do high quality humanitarian work – on an individual and corporate basis. We want to bring our professional, practical and management skills as an expression of God’s love to the world’s most vulnerable.
Our faith inspires us to give our best in all circumstances. By faith we pray for wisdom when facing difficult decisions, and for courage to live and work in demanding and often dangerous situations.
That’s why our Internationally Recruited Staff (IRS) are fully committed to the Medair values: compassion, hope, integrity, accountability, dignity, and faith. These are the ways our staff strive to live and work every day, in times of peace and in times of conflict. They are the foundation for everything we do, and the motivation for everything we aim to be. We believe our success comes from assembling strong and supportive teams that stay united through a common faith and purpose.
As an IRS with Medair, you will often start your mornings with team devotions, prayers, and words of encouragement for the day ahead. You will be asked to fully contribute to the rich spiritual life of your team. And as you carry out your work, you are also supported by Medair’s prayer network from around the world praying for you and your work.
As a Medair IRS, your mission will be to help the most vulnerable recover from crisis with dignity, without regard for race, religion, age, gender, or politics.
Our faith value is equally important to our International Headquarters teams who provide leadership for the organisation and who are also committed Christians.
Medair’s Nationally Recruited Staff (NRS) are nationals employed in countries where we have a field programme. Our NRS are crucial to the operation and success of the organisation, and reflect the religious, cultural, and political groups present within the country. NRS are asked to fully respect the Medair values when working with us.
