About CARE
Founded in 1945, CARE is a leading international humanitarian organization fighting global poverty. CARE started working in Ethiopia in 1984 in response to severe drought and famine.

About Roster Recruitment and How it Works

CARE Ethiopia’s humanitarian intervention is expanding across all parts of Ethiopia. Due to high demand for qualified professionals for the ever-increasing humanitarian response and the need for immediate deployment of pre-approved candidates for immediate employment, CARE Ethiopia is currently working on building a pool of roster recruitment as part of its talent acquisition management strategy.

CARE Ethiopia is looking to grow its pool of experienced Humanitarian Response and other professionals with the use of a Roster that can be available for short assignments (usually less than nine months), in various locations (where CARE Ethiopia is operating in Ethiopia) and at short notice. Successful applicants will be added to the roster and contacted for deployment opportunities. Missions will take place in the locations where the projects are implemented and will have a variable duration depending on availability of budget, duration of the project, and other factors.

Exclusion from CARE Roster System 

The following can be ground for CARE Ethiopia to exclude potential candidates from its employment roaster:

1.       If negative feedback is obtained from references.

2.       If the roster candidate declines more than two assignments in a calendar year

3.       If the roster candidate was not deployed for more than two years.

4.       Upon specific request from the potential candidate for her/him to be excluded from the roster
