Mercy Corps Europe has grown rapidly, both in terms of the volume of activity and its complexity. With offices in Edinburgh, London and Geneva, we now attract over £85m in income, and employ around 100 domestic and expatriate field team members. The breadth and impact of our programmes makes Mercy Corps a unique and truly rewarding place to work. Our teams are proud of what we achieve in the field and we are always looking for talented individuals who share our passion and commitment.
As a leading global organisation we strive for a diverse workforce. We believe that diversity is powerful. To achieve transformational change, we seek out team members with different origins, beliefs, backgrounds and ways of thinking. Diversity helps us unlock complexity.
Mercy Corps team members talk about their work
Policy and Advocacy Advisor at Mercy Corps Europe, London
“In many ways, my advocacy role in London is made easy by the steady stream of compelling research Mercy Corps produces and by the quality of my colleagues. Not only are they experts but they are also deeply committed to our work and to creating a sense of comradery in the day-to-day job. I love that we work simultaneously across the humanitarian, development and peacebuilding spectrum, often in the most fragile of places. It is just one example of how Mercy Corps welcomes innovation and adaptation. ”
International Finance Officer at Mercy Corps Europe, Edinburgh
“For me, one of the distinctive things about working for Mercy Corps was that within a short time of joining, I felt I had known the team all my life. They are such a dedicated, committed and loving team of people. On my first day I experienced a very warm welcome at the regional meeting in Edinburgh. The enthusiasm and positivity of our HQ Finance team in Europe motivates me to provide the best possible support to HQ and field colleagues. The opportunities I have had to visit the field have also increased my confidence and helped me carry out my job to the best of my ability.”
Strategic Institutional Partnerships Manager at Mercy Corps Europe, Geneva
“I joined Mercy Corps with 15 years of humanitarian and development work behind me but joining the agency really felt like a new step in my career. As an organisation we work differently because we address the root causes of conflicts, not only their symptoms. We collaborate with partners to build strong governance for truly sustainable, positive change. Much of our activity is based on locally led research and not on assumptions. After a crisis, we move from offering relief assistance to building community resilience through relevant, impactful programmes. Innovation is at our core. These are just some of the reasons that I’m proud to work for Mercy Corps.”
