We are looking for a creative and resourceful Recruiter with good networking skills and a proven track record in recruitment and talent attraction.

In MSF, we know that we can only be as good as our staff. Help us find the best people in Denmark to join our movement of doctors, nurses, logisticians, HR and finance specialists, and many other professionals who contribute every day to saving lives all over the world.

To attract enough suitable IMS candidates, new and innovative recruitment initiatives need to be explored, developed, and implemented.

Concurrently, MSF-DK’s HR department needs an overhaul in terms of policies, SOPs, and systems used to recruit both IMS and Office Staff.
