Philanthropy and Partnership Specialist Switzerland

What we do

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) works worldwide to provide humanitarian assistance to people affected by conflict and armed violence.

We take action in response to emergencies and at the same time promote respect for international humanitarian law. We are an independent and neutral organization, and our mandate stems essentially from the Geneva Conventions of 1949.

We work closely with National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and with their International Federation in order to ensure a concerted, rational and rapid humanitarian response to the needs of the victims of armed conflict or any other situation of internal violence.

We direct and coordinate the international activities conducted in these situations.


In order to ensure the predictable funding of its operations, the ICRC has set itself the goal to increase income from private fundraising streams.

The post-holder will join the resource mobilization team working on fundraising in Switzerland and German speaking countries.

The associate will work predominantly with the Philanthropy and Partnership Specialist responsible for German-speaking Switzerland and give punctual support, when and where possible, to the colleague in charge of the French-
