Careers in the Overseas Development Sector

International development is about engaging with economically disadvantaged regions in the world to empower people to improve their well-being and address causes of poverty. Jobs in this sector are diverse, encompassing governance, healthcare, education, gender, disaster preparedness, infrastructure, economics and livelihoods, human rights, forced migration, security, conflict, the environment and other associated issues. Whilst many international development organisations also respond to emergencies by providing or funding disaster relief and humanitarian aid, international development seeks to implement long-term solutions to problems by working with developing countries to help them create the capacity needed to provide such sustainable solutions.
