We are guided by our fundamental principles of humanity, impartiality, neutrality, independence, voluntary service, unity, and universality. We help people and communities in Canada and around the world in times of need and support them in strengthening their resilience.

On February 24, 2022, a new phase of the armed conflict in Ukraine began, with the intensification and spread of the hostilities affecting many parts of the country. This is a high-intensity conflict between two states (and possibly others) involving heavy kinetic warfare, civilian casualties, millions of refugees, large-scale internal displacement and physical destruction. The hostilities have also triggered a large-scale humanitarian response given the needs, notwithstanding major concerns for the protection of civilians and essential civilian infrastructure as well as security risks for humanitarian workers themselves.
The Canadian Red Cross is seeking to build capacity of Health Coordinator in response to the crisis in Ukraine and the surrounding region. Successful candidates will be expected to deploy for a period of 3-6 months, with the possibility of extension depending on the specific request. In partnership with Ukrainian Red Cross (URCS), the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement Partners are working to support Ukraine Humanitarian Operation (UHO) in Ukraine, with the overall objective improving the access of conflict-affected populations to essential primary health care services

What we are looking for:
This is a field-based position. Working in countries of operation is very demanding, both physically and psychologically. Delegates can be confronted to several psychosocial risks, including concerns about their security, confinement, lack of privacy, cultural adaptation, long working hours, high workload, job security, internal conflicts and mobbing.
CRC supports a safe working environment and comfortable accommodations, however, delegates must be aware of and responsible for their own personal safety and that of employees under their supervision
In line with the principle of neutrality, the CRC does not assign international personnel to a country of which they are nationals. If deploying to Ukraine, nationalities acceptable to all sides of the conflict in Ukraine will be prioritized.
This position is open until filled, however qualified applicants are encouraged to apply as soon as possible. Our goal is to provide a great candidate experience to all, so qualified applicants who apply later on during the hiring period may be considered in a second round of screening or for alternative roles.
If you require accommodation measures during any phase of the hiring process, please notify us as soon as possible. All information received in relation to accommodation requests will be kept confidential.
