The Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC)

The Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) is an independent humanitarian organization helping people forced to flee.

We protect displaced people and support them as they build a new future. We started our relief efforts after World War Two. Today, we work in both new and protracted crises across more than 40 countries. We specialize in six areas: food security, education, shelter, legal assistance, protection from violence, and water, sanitation and hygiene. 

We stand up for people forced to flee. NRC is a determined advocate for displaced people. We promote and defend displaced people's rights and dignity in local communities, with national governments and in the international arena. NRC’s Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre in Geneva is a global leader in monitoring, reporting on and advocating for people displaced within their own country. 

We work with partners across the world through NORCAP, our global provider of humanitarian, development and peacebuilding expertise. NORCAP collaborates with local, national and international partners on finding sustainable solutions to meet the needs of people at risk. 

Around 16,000 humanitarians work with the Norwegian Refugee Council. Most of us are hired locally to work in the field, and a small number are based at our head office in Oslo. Many of our colleagues were once themselves fleeing their homes. 

NRC presence in the Republic of Moldova and Romania. NRC has established its Country Office in Chisinau in March 2022, to support the people fleeing the war from Ukraine to Moldova and Romania. We are looking for motivated and inspired professionals to join in fulfilling our mission and vision: Rights Respected, People Protected.
