Intentionally Dispersed

We employ people from Boston to Bangkok, and from Denmark to Dakar. The New Humanitarian has many years of experience as an intentionally dispersed newsroom, allowing our team to live and work from wherever they are. We employ our staff as locals, on local contracts, in their country of residence. All you need is the existing right to work in the location you are in.

Joining us in Geneva or London? Then you will be able to work hybrid from home and from our offices in those locations. See more about where we are based on the map below.

Meet our team

The TNH team believes deeply in what we do and works intensely in the face of the urgency of our mission. We are committed and resilient. We push through tough moments instead of giving up. We don’t believe in the impossible: we see constraints as an opportunity for innovation and are excited - rather than anxious- in the face of challenges. We are driven by our collective ambitions, not our individual egos. We never take our privilege for granted and share our power. We are constantly learning. We are open-hearted and display curiosity. See our brilliant team below.
