Professional development

Almost by definition, humanitarian action is dynamic, constantly shifting in response to new needs, new locations and new approaches to the work. A career requires a forward-looking comprehension of key modalities such as maintaining a skill set that will be in demand in the future, identifying the entry points for a humanitarian career, and understanding career transitions within and outside of the sector. These include transitions between employers, or from the NGO environment to the UN, frontline staff to management position, employee to freelance, or from national to international staff.
