Help Haiti: Current Relief Job OpeningsBy Tiziana Cauli 16 January 2010
Relief workers are needed to help earthquake-ravaged Haiti sort through the rubble. Aid organizations are faced with a daunting task, and many are seeking short-term volunteers and paid staff.
A university degree, fluency in French and some experience in communications or nonprofit work may be all you need to join the effort.
Washington-based Visions in Action is among the NGOs that is looking for earthquake relief volunteers right now. Successful candidates will be asked to remain in the country for two to four weeks.
Aid workers can check the Devex Jobs site for some of the latest openings in Haiti.
Expertise in water and sanitation and refugee camp management are particularly valued by organizations addressing the Haiti emergency.
CHF International, for instance, is looking for a mid-level expert to address sanitation and water supply in the area.
Paid openings appear to be mostly short-term - three to four weeks maximum - and require immediate deployment.
