Careers at Caritas

How to begin a rewarding career at Caritas

In Your Country

Caritas’ strength is in its network of supporters. Its staff and volunteers – one million strong – work all around the world.

The website of your national Caritas will have information of staff vacancies and on how to join our family as a volunteer. Our national Caritas members advertise on their own websites and through their own national media. Only very few international jobs will be advertised here. If you are a member organization that would like to list a position below, please contact us.

In Rome

At Caritas Internationalis’ headquarters in Rome there are sometimes internships available and opportunities to volunteer as well as occasional job vacancies.

Our headquarters deliberately keeps a small staff so that as much of our funding as possible can be spent in the poor or crisis-hit countries where it is needed. If a position is available in Rome you will find it listed below.
