- Communications Manager, Global Partnership, NY, USA

Communications Manager, Global Partnership
The International Rescue Committee (IRC)

Location:
USA – New York, NY - HQ

Description –

More than 80 years after Albert Einstein helped create the International Rescue Committee, the number and intensity of humanitarian crises across the globe warrant a dose of Einstein-inspired vision.  

Every month, nearly one million people flee their homes because of conflicts or natural disasters. With few wars ending, and new wars starting, the number of people displaced has surpassed 65million, the most since World War II. Their growing and increasingly complex needs mandate a transformation—a creative rethinking—in the global humanitarian response. 

Our strategy – IRC 2020 – is our answer. We are building programs that rebuild lives, providing more and faster rescue and relief, creating the capacity for systematic research to develop innovative approaches to crisis situations, and building collaboration with the public, private and nonprofit sectors
