Field offices - humanitarian experts

The European Commission Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection department ECHO regularly recruits specialized staff on a temporary basis to be deployed on the field. Humanitarian experts are recruited as Technical Assistants and Thematic Coordinators to support ECHO's work in the 44 field offices across the world. 

In order to become a Technical Assistant or Thematic Coordinator, interested candidates need to apply via an online system. Selected experts are then included in a database. Once listed in the database, experts can apply for the vacant posts in ECHO field office. See below the list of the latest vacancies.      

Humanitarian experts, together with the national staff recruited locally, make up the ECHO Field Network. In 2013, the ECHO Field Network consisted of 140 international humanitarian experts and 320 national staff members located in 44 field offices in over 39 countries.

The main functions of the Network are to get the latest humanitarian and disaster information from the ground and support the delivery of assistance to crisis areas. In addition to their main functions, the Network also regularly monitors relief efforts undertaken by ECHO's partners and helps coordinate joint actions in the field.
