CARE International in Vietnam is a dynamic organisation working with Vietnamese partner organisations for over 28 years on 300+ projects. CVN recognises that the key to achieving equitable development outcomes lies in shifting deeply rooted, structural underlying causes of poverty and social and gender injustice which contribute to exclusion and vulnerability of particular groups in society. CVN’s long term programme goals are that Remote Ethnic Minority Women (REMW) and Socially Marginalised People (SMP) equitably benefit from development, are resilient to changing circumstances and have a legitimate voice.
CARE is an equal opportunity employer committed to a diverse workforce. Women, ethnic minorities and people with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply.
