Humanitarian Trainee Scheme

Kenya October 2016 Intake

Are you passionate about Humanitarian work but have limited experience in the Humanitarian Sector? Save the Children is glad to invite applications for the Humanitarian Trainee Scheme. The Humanitarian Trainee Scheme is a one year placement with an NGO that offers a unique opportunity to gain hands-on experience in emergencies and crisis response operations. This programme combines structured training with coached field deployments which equip individuals to effectively contribute to humanitarian programmes.


A one year entry level programme targeting individuals especially those from remote areas and with little experience in the humanitarian sector. The scheme is aimed at people who are resilient, capable and enthusiastic who already have some experience of humanitarian-related work but need more professional experience in order to pursue a long-term humanitarian career. During your traineeship you are required to pass three modules. These modules include face-to-face classroom learning, simulation training, distance learning and personal reflection as well as intensive academic study and the submission of written assignments in English.

The programme enables participants to develop the behaviour, skills and knowledge required to operate safely and effectively in humanitarian contexts with a particular focus on working as part of a humanitarian team. Please apply through the link below. Those who meet the requirements are encouraged to apply immediately as completed applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
