This is an excellent opportunity for individuals who are resilient and self-motivated to join The HALO Trust to be trained to lead our teams and manage operations in our global programmes.

The HALO Trust’s mission is: “To lead the effort save lives and restore livelihoods for those affected by conflict”.  HALO is known for its work to clear landmines but is increasingly involved in the disposal of other explosive ordnance and weapon control.  

When you become an officer in HALO you join a team with a shared commitment to making a difference in some of the most vulnerable communities in the world. HALO offers a full training package, so you do not require previous knowledge of landmine clearance or ordnance disposal. We want people who have a sense of adventure, but are responsible and mature. We are looking for leaders who are resilient and self-motivated to command our teams and manage operations. 

HALO’s Field Officers work across our programmes in various roles with significant responsibilities, you will need the aptitude to work in dynamic and challenging environments and have management and leadership skills. HALO training will prepare you for one of our programmes, where you could be commanding between 250 to 1000 local employees. You will receive a broad based training, including leadership and management, mine clearance, ordnance disposal and minefield survey as well as other skills such as proposal writing, finance, logistics, security and quality management.

Working for HALO is hugely rewarding. It is also challenging, hard work and involves working and living in remote locations with very basic living conditions. You will be based overseas and, as an international employee you must be flexible and be willing to be posted to any of HALO's programmes. For further information please see our website at www.halotrust.org. You will work and live with other international staff and work with staff from various cultures and backgrounds, so you will need exceptional interpersonal skills.

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

Working for HALO can lead to significant personal and professional development, and we offer employees further training and development to support their career progression. HALO is committed to ensuring the health, well-being and human rights of all staff, partners and beneficiaries, and to provide a safe and trusted environment for anyone who comes in to contact with our work, but we do expect you to be tough and resilient. HALO requires its applicants to work in line with our values which are:
