The Centre for Humanitarian Dialogue (the HD Centre) is an independent and impartial organisation, based in Geneva, Switzerland, dedicated to improving the global response to conflict.
It attempts to achieve this by undertaking and promoting action to prevent and resolve armed conflicts through tailor-made support to peace processes, and by contributing to the improvement of the practice of mediation and the strengthening of capacity within the wider community of practitioners.
The success of the HD Centre's operations is dependent on the quality and the commitment of its Human Resources. Our team is made of individuals driven by meaningful objectives who find creative approaches to “getting things done”.
The HD Centre recruits professionals who have an entrepreneurial approach, are able to reflect on their work and are dedicated to making a difference in peace and mediation efforts. With a staff of more than twenty different nationalities and an equal number of men and women employees, the HD Centre offers a unique working environment in a challenging field.
Permanent and short-term career opportunities are posted below when they become available.
The HD Centre is willing to offers students an opportunity to acquire direct exposure and allow them to contribute to the organisation’s work through unpaid internships.
When internship positions become available, the HD centre will give preference to students undertaking degrees in political science, international relations, peace and conflict, human rights, humanitarian law or equivalent. Eligible candidates must also be fluent in English.
Knowledge in pre- and post-conflict situations, conflict resolution and peacemaking, with experience in researching, analysing and writing on political contexts will be strongly favoured.
Motivated students should send their resume together with an application letter by email to: hrmanager(at)hdcentre.org.
