Working for MSF in the UK is an exciting and rewarding challenge and our London office plays a vital role in the MSF movement.
You will find lots of information in the Working for MSF in the UK section of the website. You may also find the following FAQs useful. Please note that these relate specifically to roles in MSF UK's office in London.
Q. Do you accept speculative applications or CVs?
Unfortunately we do not accept speculative applications. Please apply for specific roles that match your skills and experience.
Q. Do I need to be based in the UK to apply to work with MSF UK?
You do not have to be based in the UK to apply for a role. However, it is assumed that you have the right to work in the UK (unless it is specified otherwise), and can cover any potential relocation costs.
Q. If English is not my first language, can I still apply?
We don’t ask applicants to complete a formal English test, however a good level of verbal and written English is required.
Q. Can I apply for more than one role?
You may apply for more than one role, but each role must have its own cover letter that details how you meet the role’s person specification. Each role has different tasks and responsibilities.
Q. I have a disability and have certain requirements to enable me to attend an interview. Would I still be considered?
We are an equal opportunities employer and will ensure that every reasonable adjustment is made to enable candidates to attend interviews. If you have any special requirements for your interview please make them known at the time you are offered an interview so we can accommodate you as much as possible.
Q. If I am unsuccessful at application or interview stage can you give me feedback?
Rest assured that every application is carefully reviewed and considered, but unfortunately we are not able to provide feedback as standard to unsuccessful applications unless you reach the interview stage.
Q. If I am unsuccessful, can I apply for future roles?
Yes, and we encourage you to apply if you believe you have the right skills and experience required for the role for which you’re applying.
Q. Will I get the opportunity to travel?
Some roles require occasional or regular travel to the field or other MSF offices; the opportunity to travel depends on the role and its responsibilities.
