Interview

Completed applications and supporting documents are screened by a Field HR Recruitment Officer within four weeks of submission. Candidates whose qualifications best meet the organization's needs are invited to a phone screening and/or an interview to determine their suitability.

Information Days

Following an interview, reference check, and employment verification, suitable candidates are invited to attend our virtual onboarding course called Information Days. Information Days is a mandatory course for those wishing to be accepted into the MSF-USA pool. Following Information Days, the recruitment process will be concluded with a background check.

Pool

Selected candidates are included in an active pool of field staff. Candidates in the pool may be sent to further MSF training programs before going on a field assignment. When the need arises, MSF offices match positions that must be filled to the most appropriate candidate, who is contacted and offered the position. It may take several months for a candidate to be offered a position on a project. We aim to place newly recruited candidates within 6 months.

Inclusion

MSF-USA is committed to the principles of equity, inclusion, and respect of diversity. As core principles inextricably linked to our success; equity, inclusion, and respect of diversity allow us to carry out our social mission and serve our patients.

MSF Field HR fosters diversity by embracing people of all races, ethnicities, national origins, genders, ages, religions, abilities, sexual orientations, and socioeconomic status.

The MSF-USA Field HR Recruitment Strategy reflects MSF-USA’s strong commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion to ensure a highly skilled and culturally responsive workforce.
