RedR Australia is a not-for-profit humanitarian agency, ready to supply skilled professionals to where they are needed most in times of crisis. We also train aid workers, equipping them with the skills needed to be effective in the field.
We’re holding our annual evening information sessions in September for anyone keen to gain an insight into how we work, what happens on our training courses and how to join our Register of skilled professionals.
Our people will share what you can expect from a RedR Australia field assignment and what it’s like supporting an international humanitarian relief effort. You’ll also have an opportunity to ask any burning questions you may have.
Standby Register members are ideally professionals with at least five years’ experience in their field including 12 months in an international context, preferably in an emergency response setting. Our people are ‘field ready’ and can be on the ground within days of a disaster.
We recruit from a wide range of skillsets including public health, information and communications technology, logistics, public information/media liaison, engineering and water and sanitation.
Our current priority recruitment profiles include:
- information management, ideally with GIS skills
- protection and child protection
- emergency response
- education in emergencies
The nitty gritty:
Melbourne – Monday 16 September
Sydney – Monday 23 September
Venue details and other information will be provided via email. Like birthdays and tax returns our info sessions only happen once a year, and space is limited so get in quick to secure your spot.
We look forward to seeing you there! Visit www.redr.org.au for more information on who we are and what we do.
