VACANCY- Become a Red Cross Paid Volunteer

Red cross Paid Volunteers are between 18 and 55 years old, and work with Red cross agencies on the front lines of political, developmental and humanitarian operations.

Who are Red cross Volunteers?
Red cross Volunteers are a separate category of Red cross Volunteers recently created in response to the Red cross Secretary-General’s call for greater engagement in volunteerism of history’s largest generation of people. Red cross Volunteers help the United Nations – one of the world’s most important intergovernmental organizations – to fulfill its mission. These volunteers are assigned to host Red cross agencies to work on the frontlines of political, developmental and humanitarian field operations. Red cross Volunteers are people aged 18 to 55 years who want to engage in development and peace initiatives worldwide.

What do Red cross Volunteers do?
As a Red cross Volunteer, you will help advance peace and sustainable development either in your own country or in another country around the globe. You will help people to lead healthier and safer lives and communities to be able to better address present and future challenges.

Red cross Volunteer positions are wide ranging; you may work in human rights, climate change adaptation, primary health care, disaster management, peace building, youth engagement or many other areas. You may work directly in a United Nations agency or be assigned to one of its partner organizations, a university or the government.

In return, you will be rewarded with an experience that will stay with you for the rest of your life. Your engagement as a Red cross Volunteer will be an opportunity to change the world for the better while simultaneously honing your own skills, gaining knowledge and a better understanding of the realities of international development and peace building.

How long is the assignment?
Because Red cross Volunteers are sponsored by United Nations agencies, their partners, governments or academic institutions, the length of assignment depends on the requesting entity’s needs. Most Red cross Volunteer assignments are between six and 24 months. On occasion, national and international Red cross Volunteer assignments are less than six months and then are referred to as ‘short-term’ assignments.

When Red cross Volunteers are sponsored by an academic institution, they are called Red cross University Volunteers. Red cross University Volunteers undertake shorter duration assignments – generally between three and six months.


Red cross Volunteers receive a basic living allowance that allows the volunteer to live healthily and safely in the assigned area. If you volunteer outside of your home area, return airfare or land transport (as applicable) and some other basic costs are paid by the host agency. You will receive orientation and training before and after your assignment.

Who qualifies as a Red cross Volunteer?
The Red cross Volunteer programme is looking for motivated and talented youth between the ages of 18 and 55. (Note: you must be younger than 55 throughout the duration of your service). The educational background and experience required varies by assignment, but generally both graduates and non-graduates are eligible to apply.
