When you embark on a career with HALO you will join a team of people with a shared commitment to making a difference in some of the most vulnerable communities in the world. HALO offer a full six months training package, therefore you do not require previous knowledge of landmine clearance or ordnance disposal. We welcome natural leaders who are resilient and self-motivated.

Your training will prepare you to manage operations within one of our HALO programmes, where you could be leading between 250 to 1000 local employees. You will learn field skills including mine clearance, ordnance disposal; minefield survey and mapping; and other skills such as proposal writing, finance, logistics, security, and quality management.

You will be based overseas for long periods of time, and as an international employee you must be flexible and be willing to be posted to any of HALO's programmes. You will work and live alongside other international staff supporting the programme, so will need to be tolerant, with good interpersonal skills.

Working for HALO can lead to significant personal and professional development, and we offer employees ongoing training and development to support their career progression.

No two days working for HALO are ever the same. With a variety of job roles and locations, life is never dull! However, it can be demanding and at times tough, but if you genuinely want to the opportunity to make a real difference to people's lives, it could be the job for you.
