IRIN Vacancy: Admin & Finance Officer

3 August 2016

IRIN is hiring an Admin & Finance Officer to join our team in Geneva as soon as possible. See the job description.

If you think you have what it takes, please send your CV to [email protected] (subject line: Admin & Finance Officer), along with a cover letter outlining outlining why you’d like to work with IRIN in particular, and why you are well-suited for a demanding international start-up environment requiring an all-rounder ready to get his/her hands dirty!

We look forward to hearing from you!

Deadline for application: 31 August 2016


Our goals are ambitious. We aim to become the reference for those in the business of saving lives, all of those who care about the causes, responses, effects and impacts of crises.  And we’re bringing together some of the sharpest minds in the business to make this happen. Conflicts and natural disasters are on the rise. The number of people affected by humanitarian crises has doubled in the last decade. $22 billion were spent in emergency relief in 2013. Meanwhile, mainstream media coverage has been in steady decline. And still, the international aid system has often failed those most in need. 

As we chart a new way forward, IRIN is needed more than ever.

Join us.


IRIN is looking for a Director of Fundraising and Communications. We currently have no other vacancies, but we are on the look-out for:

  • Interns: IRIN is looking for sharp, digitally-savvy, innovative researchers/writers with a solid understanding of international / humanitarian issues to support our core editorial team.
  • Graphic designers, developers, social media geeks, and other techies who can design infographics, analyze web metrics, and make sure our content travels well and matches our high editorial standards with equally good presentation. 
  • Freelance writers, photographers and videographers who have a tendency to go to interesting places, to find nuggets of interesting detail, and to innovate in format and delivery, please find the editor here and pitch them an idea. 


If you fit one of these profiles, or are otherwise interested in our mission, please get in touch by emailing us at [email protected] with:

  • A cover letter highlighting your motivations, region of interest, where you are based and what you are interested in doing for IRIN
  • An updated CV
  • Examples of your work

Please forgive us, we can't reply to every query but we will get in touch if you match our requirements.
