Discover People in Need in November

Discover People in Need in November

Discover People in Need is a unique event designed especially for senior business professionals, who have considered using their experience in the Humanitarian and Development sector.

• Have you ever wondered what it would be like to provide aid to people in need around the world?

• Do you already have 5+ years of professional experience and have you been thinking about changing your career and/or starting a new one in a different field?

• Do you find the idea of working for People in Need attractive, but you would like to get real experience?

If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions, come and put yourself in the shoes of a People in Need employee for one day! You will have the opportunity to experience the everyday life of an NGO worker, both at the headquarters and at the country programs abroad through various hands-on activities and personal meetings with our management and other colleagues.

Whom will you meet with?
