Policies Officer (HR) 

Nairobi, Kenya
This Job has Expired
Company Details
Industry: Non-Profit Organization Management
Description: International Alert was founded in 1986 to help people find peaceful solutions to conflict. At that time, the number of conflicts between countries was decreasing, but there was an alarming increase in the number of conflicts within countries. These conflicts were undermining development and leading to gross violations of human rights. Identifying and highlighting individual abuses of human rights was not enough; a different approach was desperately needed. It was out of this urgency that International Alert was born.
