Introduction to the Field Human Resources (FHR) Department, MSF Australia

The Field Human Resources (FHR) Department of MSF Australia recruits, places and manages medical and non-medical field staff for MSF’s medical humanitarian projects worldwide.

Overall Responsibility

The Field Departures Coordinator plays a key role in coordinating the logistics and administration of departures and returns of field workers who are seconded to MSF Operational Centres to work in overseas field projects. This role has a wide scope of responsibility over a diverse range of tasks associated with the field deployment process. It requires close liaison with the Operational Centres, to ensure that on time departures allow operational needs to be met, and with field workers, to advise them on all matters relating to their departures and returns to and from the field.


Médecins Sans Frontières Australia is committed to creating an inclusive workplace for all our staff. We believe that a diverse team helps us better serve those most in need, we encourage flexibility (in all its forms) and we encourage people from a wide range of backgrounds to apply for this role, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds and people with disabilities. People with a disability can request support from our Domestic HR Department if you think you may require reasonable adjustment during the recruitment process.
