The DRC Standby Roster manages three specialized rosters and the recruitment process described below is similar for all of them.
There is open for recruitment when there is a need for certain profiles. On a yearly basis data collection and analysis comparing the number of UN requests received for specific technical areas/profiles with the number and profiles of active members in the database is made informing the decisions on what profiles to recruit for.
Any recruitment for the rosters is announced on this page as well as advertised as a vacancy on the DRC homepage. The vacancies are open for 3 weeks, and the recruitment procedure typically takes 3-4 months from beginning to end.
We do not accept unsolicited applications, but only online applications submitted through the DRC website.
We encourage people from all nationalities to apply.
Through the DRC online application system (see DRC vacancies), we ask the candidate to upload:
Name and contact details for references will be requested later in the recruitment process.
After review and screening of all applicants, shortlisted candidates may be asked to undertake a written test. Candidates who pass the test (if applicable), will be invited to participate in an online interview where knowledge of the technical area and humanitarian emergency programming as well as more personal topics like the motivation for joining the roster are explored. We may also conduct language checks during the interview.
References provided by the candidate will be contacted by email during the recruitment process.
Specific information regarding recruitment and membership for each roster can be found here.
