SOS Children’s Villages recruits 01 Internal Audit Advisor (f/m/d)

Description de l’offre

SOS Children’s Villages, founded in 1949 by Hermann Gmeiner, is the world’s largest non-governmental organization focused on supporting children and young people without parental care, or at risk of losing it.

Child neglect, abuse and abandonment is everywhere. Families are at risk of separation. Locally led, we work in more than 130 countries and territories to strengthen families who are under pressure so they can stay together. When this is not in a child or young person’s best interests, we provide quality care according to their unique needs.

Together with partners, donors, communities, children, young people and families, we enable children to grow up with the bonds they need to develop and become their strongest selves. We speak up for each child’s rights and advocate for change so all children can grow up in a supportive environment.

Location: Vienna or Innsbruck/ Austria. Alternatively, the position can be based in Addis Ababa, Nairobi, Dakar, Casablanca, Amman, Skopje or Tallinn.

Duration: Full time, unlimited
