JRS staff are international and local professionals, Jesuits, and members of other religious congregations. We come from 82 countries worldwide, and many of us have worked in other leading humanitarian, emergency, and development organisations.

JRS seeks staff who share our vision of accompanying refugees and are prepared to work in complex situations.

We need programme leaders to make change happen. We need specialists in education, livelihoods, psychosocial support, reconciliation, and impact assessment. We need talented people to work in areas such as advocacy and communications, philanthropy and development, finance, human resources, logistics, and information technology.

Our work cannot succeed without the contribution of exceptional people.
