IRC Investigator Jobs in Nairobi Kenya

The International Rescue Committee is among the world’s leading humanitarian relief and development organizations.


The IRC has been at the forefront of virtually every major humanitarian initiative to assist people uprooted by war, persecution, or civil conflict for the last 80 years.

And, more than 80 years after Albert Einstein helped create the IRC, the number and intensity of humanitarian crises across the globe warrant a dose of Einstein-inspired innovation.
