Working abroad

Basic requirements for a posting abroad are a fitness for the tropics, very good language skills and an interest in foreign cultures and ways of thinking: A posting abroad means leaving behind your familiar environment and diving into countries with different values and social norms. Working abroad will give you many new and interesting impressions and also requires you to have a high level of sensitivity and understanding of foreign living conditions and cultural particularities.

Typical positions offered by Welthungerhilfe abroad include, for example: Experts inagriculture, water, nutrition, logistics or emergency assistance, project manager, experts inadvising our local partner organisations or in the financial-administrative management in a project country.
