We are currently looking in particular administrators with a good level of French. Candidates speaking only English may apply as well, but speaking French at a level that allows you to be deployed on a French-speaking mission – for example, in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Chad, or the Central African Republic – significantly increases your chances of being accepted.
