Assignments abroad

HEKS generally works with local partner organisations abroad.

During major humanitarian crises and for specific mandates HEKS sends personnel abroad from Switzerland. These are professionals with many years of international experience.

Open positions are published under Vacancies.

No volunteer missions

Thank you for your interest in volunteer work. Assignments are possible in some HEKS programmes in Switzerland. In that regard please visit the web pages of our Regional Offices.

Swiss Church Aid does not offer any volunteer assignments abroad. In Palestine/Israel, Honduras and Colombia, however, we support organisations that promote peace operations. «Peace Watch Switzerland» offers the opportunity to become a human rights observer in these countries.
