‘Faith inspired action’:

Islamic Relief is an international aid agency that has served humanity for over 30 years by striving to make the world a better, fairer place. We remain guided by the timeless values and teachings of the Qur’an and prophetic example. As such, you don’t need to be a Muslim to work for us, but you will need to show a commitment to our faith-inspired values – sincerity, excellence, compassion, social justice and custodianship.

Islamic Relief was established in Birmingham, UK, in 1984. We employ more than 2,000 staff across 40 offices around the world and we have no greater priority than ensuring that our work has the greatest positive impact on the people we serve. And, in doing so, we put our faith into action to bring about real social change.

Our projects work to help vulnerable communities meet the big challenges in their lives. We do this by taking an integrated approach to development; looking at the wider context and causes of their needs and promoting sustainable, environment-friendly outcomes. We are also determined to empower marginalized people with a strong voice that argues powerfully for the change they need to transform their lives.

Right across the Islamic Relief global family, our 2011-2015 Strategy focuses our resources, planning and programming on achieving these important aims.

In doing so, we work in partnership with those that share our vision of a world in which empowered and socially responsible communities respond as one to the suffering of others. Islamic Relief is a member of the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC); we have Consultative Status with the UN Economic and Social Council; and we are a signatory to the Code of Conduct for the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement.

If you like what you have read so far and if you are committed to serving the millions trapped in poverty and suffering, then please apply for any appropriate vacancy below. We look forward to hearing from you.

IMPORTANT: Please note, for UK based roles, we are only able to accept applications from candidates who are eligible to work in the UK. We are unable to progress applications which would require sponsorship.
