Around the world, emergency medical aid requires highly qualified experts who join forces to provide access to medical care for people in need. They are united by a commitment to MSF values, a passion for humanitarian work and an irrepressible thirst for action. As a team, they even work in places where there would be no medical help at all without them. Their goal is to save human lives. 

In view of the many humanitarian crises around the world, millions of people need our help. This is why we are constantly looking for people to go on MSF field missions - both medical and non-medical. 


Working in humanitarian projects is fascinating, yet challenging and the demands on our staff are high. Find out more about what you need to bring with you as an "expat".


Who cannot work with us

Some people, however, cannot go on field missions due to special needs. Here is an overview of the occupational groups for which we unfortunately have no vacancies.

Contract, Benefits, Salary

MSF was founded as a voluntary organisation and wishes to remain so. Volunteering means that people freely choose to go on a mission and show personal commitment and responsibility towards people in need. 

Volunteers do not work pro bono, they receive a service contract and a monthly salary. We find it highly important to offer our staff a minimum package of benefits.
