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.
The Head of Compensation & Benefits (C&B) is accountable, in partnership with the People & Culture (PAC) leadership and ICRC leadership, and in alignment with broader ICRC strategic initiatives, for leading the design and implementation of a global and integrated C&B strategy that enables the organization to attract, reward and retain staff members across geographies and functions. They are also responsible for leading the design, development, implementation, analysis and monitoring of C&B programmes within a holistic and cost-effective framework that aligns with and supports the mission and values of the ICRC. The Head of C&B also oversees the Payroll function.
The ICRC values diversity and is committed to creating an inclusive working environment. We welcome applications from all qualified candidates.
