The HALO Trust Career Opputunities
The HALO Trust is the largest organization for humanitarian mine clearance in the world. We save lives and rebuild societies endangered by landmines and other weapons of war, such as cluster bombs, small arms stores and improvised explosive devices (IEDs). Born out of a desire to assist the people of Afghanistan in 1988, we now have over 6,000 workers working to get impoverished communities back on their feet after conflict in 19 countries and territories. Thanks to this work, millions of families have been able to return to their homes safely, but there is still a lot to do.
There are many challenges associated with the delivery of humanitarian work, but we are passionate about our commitment to building safe, stable societies, but we are not afraid to work in countries where there are gaps in international support for clear humanitarian needs.Demining remains our core purpose, but we are strengthening our work in arms and ammunition management in order to deal with the wider debris of war. We help governments control military supplies and dispose of arms and ammunition.
WHAT WE DO
In war torn communities, we build safe and stable environments by removing landmines, maintaining military stocks and destroying unexploded ordnance. Battle leaves dead countries behind. For those who have lost everything, it is hard enough, without finding out they will not return home because the land is dangerous.
In the immediate aftermath, humanitarian assistance helps, but after the news has left the headlines, there is a void in the process of recovery where people are overlooked. Before they can return home and farm their ground, families can not recover their lives.
Development cannot begin until there is safety, security and confidence to support infrastructure, or to plan for essential buildings like homes, hospitals, schools and businesses.
In short, we help some of the world’s most vulnerable communities get back on their feet.
