Our People

At War Child we work to ensure that children affected by conflict and violence can realise their fundamental rights and build a better future. We reach many thousands of children every year - all thanks to the dedicated efforts of our members of staff around the world.

We strive to create an atmosphere where all our staff take pride in their work and feel empowered to contribute towards our mission. Everyone who works for War Child has the opportunity to work, learn and develop within a safe environment.

War Child employed 496 full-time members of staff on average across the year as a whole - 98 in our Amsterdam office and 398 inside our countries of operation.

We promote the hiring of local staff to execute our programmes wherever possible. Inside our countries of operation, we recruited 376 members of staff from local communities during 2019 - out of a total of 398 positions in total.

The number of interns working for the organisation remained broadly static during 2019 - eight interns were on average learning and working in various departments during the year. Our interns make a significant contribution to our activities - a contribution which we would like to thank them for.
