Stellenausschreibung: Interim Director Communications



About Us

Over the past 80 years, the International Rescue Committee (IRC) has developed unparalleled expertise in responding to emergencies and helping uprooted communities to rebuild. Founded in 1933 at the request of Albert Einstein, the IRC offers lifesaving care and life-changing assistance to refugees forced to flee from war or disaster.

The IRC is on the ground in more than 45 countries, providing emergency relief, relocating refugees and rebuilding lives in the wake of disaster. IRC Deutschland (IRC-DE) is part of the IRC global network, which has its headquarter in New York. Since 2016 the IRC has also been active with two offices in Germany. Here we engage in strategic dialogue with other actors in humanitarian aid and development cooperation, acquire funding and shape the dialogue with political stakeholders for the benefit of those affected by displacement. We also implement integration projects with and for refugees in Germany, focusing on the areas of protection, education and economic integration.

As a maternity cover for 12 months, we are looking for a Director Communications for IRC Deutschland who will further build and increase the profile of IRC-DE in support of our broader communications, fundraising and policy & advocacy objectives. The role will do so by following and further developing a communications strategy for the IRC in Germany, outlining objectives and actions to be taken.
