Are you a Mercy Corps person?
The people who join our team are a special bunch.
They’re leaders, and they take responsibility every day to act on our core values and advance our mission. They exhibit discipline in their work and in their relationships. To every challenge, project and interaction, they apply a balance of head and heart.
Our people are smart. They’re rigorous thinkers with the highest intellectual and analytical skills. They relish challenges and come up with creative solutions to the world’s toughest problems. They’re optimists: if one idea fails, they get right back to work on a new one. They don’t stay attached to old ways of thinking, nor do they let their egos get in the way. They are confident and curious, always open to learning. That’s how - in a fast-changing world, and even when resources are slim - they consistently come up with great programs.
Just as important, our people have the highest standards of personal integrity and judgment. They’re clear communicators who are equally able to lead, share and follow. When in charge, they know how to motivate their teams and get people working toward a shared goal. They’re open to others’ ideas, trusting of others’ abilities and quick to share the credit. As contributors, they bring their best efforts to the task at hand and collaborate easily with their teammates. They favor compassion over competition and a smile over a smirk. They care deeply about the people we serve.
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.
Our people are proud to represent Mercy Corps, and conscious that they do so not just in the workplace, but wherever they go. If you see yourself in this profile, you may belong on our team.

Deputy Country Director, Kenya
“When I joined Mercy Corps it was just after Kenya had come through a very traumatizing experience, the post election violence of 2007 and 2008. And there was a lot of pain and a lot of anger, mistrust. What is unique and different about Mercy Corps is that it works in transitional environments that are pretty delicate. The fact that they have the courage to go in there when they are most needed, I think that is very unique about Mercy Corps.” Watch his video to learn more.
