vROC location - Online course
For the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have adapted the ROC to hold it virtually (vROC). Those invited will participate from home, and will need to be fully present online for the entire vROC week, and will not be able to schedule any professional or personal commitments during the vROC dates. A laptop with a working camera, good power supply as well as a strong internet connection, will be required to participate. Further information to be provided.
19th November (4 p.m. CEST) - 26th November 2021 (10 p.m. CEST)
vROC Application deadline:
24th October 2021
If a field contract is signed after the vROC, it normally ranges from (a minimum of) 12 months to 2 years.
Please note that attending the vROC does not guarantee a job placement after the vROC.
Field contracts given will be based in one of these countries or any new programmes that Medair starts up.
If you have professional experience that matches one or more of the Medair sectors but you cannot see any current jobs that fit your profile, apply directly for the Medair vROC, our “virtual Relief and Recovery Orientation Course”.
We will try and match your profile to our upcoming field vacancy needs and if there is a good match, we will consider you for this vROC or a future ROC or vROC.
Everyone who desires to work as an International Staff in one of our field programmes must first successfully complete the ROC or vROC.
Candidates accepted onto the Medair ROC/vROC will be considered for International Staff field roles.
The ROC is an intensive experiential orientation to relief work with Medair. This 7 day course is held three/four times a year. Participants experience the challenges of relief work through practical simulations and become familiar with Medair’s values, projects, and country programmes. Each participant will be interviewed by a senior member of the Medair Human Resources team to evaluate the week and discuss their possible future with Medair in a field programme. The course is normally held in Switzerland or Kenya. The vROC course is held virtually online.
The ROC simulation includes practical exercises, research, and daily updates of changing field conditions and security bulletins.
