Thinking of a Career in Emergency Management?
- BY Nicole Pelette
The United Nations World Food Programme is the world's largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide. The mission of WFP is to help the world achieve Zero Hunger in our lifetimes. Every day, WFP works worldwide to ensure that no child goes to bed hungry and that the poorest and most vulnerable, particularly women and children, can access the nutritious food they need.
In emergencies, WFP gets food to where it is needed, saving the lives of victims of war, civil conflict and natural disasters. After an emergency, WFP uses food to help communities rebuild their shattered lives. On average, WFP reaches more than 80 million people with food assistance in 75 countries each year. The organization has a global footprint, deep field presence and local knowledge and relationships necessary to provide access to nutritious food and contribute to the lasting solutions, especially in many of the world’s most remote and fragile areas.
WFP’s greatest strength is; its dedicated people working tirelessly around the world to reduce hunger, often under difficult conditions where security threats and risks to personal safety are considerable. The organization is committed to transforming its HR function to a strategic business partner. To achieve this, a lot of new HR initiatives are launching and WFP is looking for outstanding HR interns to get involved and contribute to these exciting HR projects.
We are currently recruiting driven and independent students for an internship based in Regional Bureau of Cairo (Egypt) to assist the Regional HR team with a lot of stimulating new projects. As part of the regional HR team, this internship will contribute and assist in developing and coordinating world-class programs and solutions in diversified HR area like employer branding, sourcing strategy, onboarding, gender parity, people development, reward and recognition, and others.
