Welthungerhilfe offers a wide variety of interesting positions, from national voluntary service to entry opportunities as a junior expert up to the leadership of projects or country offices. The right role for you, what you need to bring to it and how to apply are set out below:

Basic requirements for a posting abroad are a fitness for the tropics, very good language skills and an interest in foreign cultures and ways of thinking: A posting abroad means leaving behind your familiar environment and diving into countries with different values and social norms.
