Work With Us

We rely on a strong network of professionals to deliver lifesaving medical aid.

MSF doesn’t employ only doctors and nurses. We recruit employees from a large range of professions in the medical, finance, logistics, IT, administration, human resources, and communications fields, and in other areas. Nearly 68,000 staff worked with MSF in 2022 to provide medical care to those who need it the most.  

Work in our projects

Our staff work during conflicts and epidemics, and following natural disasters. The conditions are challenging, but the rewards are enormous.   
We need medical and non-medical staff to make our work possible. Do you think you have what it takes? Find out more about who we are looking for, the employment conditions, and how to apply below.

Our behavioural commitments

The integrity of our organisation is upheld by the good conduct of each individual staff member, in any location, with full respect for the communities we serve.

For us, this means not tolerating any behaviour from our staff that exploits the vulnerability of others, or of employees taking advantage of their position for personal gain.

We do not tolerate any physical or psychological abuse against individuals, sexual harassment, sexual relations with minors, or any behaviour that does not respect human dignity.

MSF promotes a working environment free of harassment and abuse. Our leadership has unequivocally committed to fight abuse and to reinforce mechanisms and procedures to prevent and address it.

Warning: scams, hoaxes and frauds misusing MSF's name

Please be aware there have been cases of individuals posing as Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) staff to scam people out of money. MSF has received reports of third parties attempting to fraudulently obtain money on our behalf via email, social networking websites or apps, or in person at public locations. The following is a list of scams and hoaxes that have been brought to our attention (please note this list is not exhaustive). 

The following is a list of scams and hoaxes that have been brought to our attention (please note this list is not exhaustive): 

  • People posing as MSF human resources or recruitment staff ask people applying for a job with MSF for money or to pay a fee for recruitment. 
  • People posing as MSF staff, or acting on behalf of MSF staff, on social networking websites or apps in order to lure unsuspecting members of the public to send funds to cover the travel costs of the alleged MSF staff member to return from a field mission.
  • People posing as MSF staff who have been detained on their way home and asking for money to be transferred in order to secure their release from detention.
  • People posing as MSF staff requesting money to pay for individual medical procedures for fictitious patients.
  • An individual or individuals carrying out what appears to be fraudulent collections of money in public locations, while pretending to represent MSF.  

Please note that these scenarios are situations that MSF staff never find themselves in.

MSF staff in the field have access to funds in an emergency and so do not need to request financial support from anyone, for themselves or their patients. 

All MSF staff have channels of contact if they find themselves in an unfortunate situation like losing their passport or have trouble with a visa. We will always provide the support they need to get home. 

Unsure if you have been scammed? 
Unfortunately, there is very little we can do to stop scams such as these and others from happening. If you are unsure if you are the subject of a scam or fraud involving a supposed MSF staff member, please contact us using the details above.
