“CARE has been active in Uganda and working in the country continuously since 1969”


CARE International in Uganda is an Equal Opportunities, gender sensitive and corruption intolerant employer. CARE International in Uganda does not charge or seek remuneration for any recruitment process.

The recruitment process of CARE International in Uganda is centralized within the Country office Human Resource section under the supervision of the HR Manager. A hiring manager initiates the recruitment process by submitting a Signed Employee request (ER) and the Job description to the HR Manager. Upon receipt of the ER, the HR Manager reviews it and if it has been completed correctly, submits it to either the Program Director, Emergency Team Leader or the Country Director for approval.

An advert is composed which has to comply with CARE International advertisement standards. We use various modes of advertisement; – Newspapers, our website and through various other network platforms. All candidates go through the same recruitment process, regardless of the nature of the position, to ensure that applications are judged on individual merit.

Applications are submitted via our recruitment email: ugarecruitment@care.org. Applicants are subject to pre-screening to ensure they are suitable and once we are able to choose those who meet our criteria , we then go through a series of interviews to ensure we get the right candidate for the job. Our HR department carries out reference checks to confirm the information contained within the CVs.

Our interview process is very gender sensitive and as such we are focused on finding candidates who are gender sensitive and aware. Our CARE core values of integrity, transparency, excellence, diversity and Equality are at the center of all that we do, and candidates who wish to join our team are expected to embrace and align their values with our own.

About CARE in Uganda

CARE International has been working in Uganda since 1969 to address the urgent needs of conflict and disaster-affected populations and to provide support to community development. CARE’s first projects in Uganda focused on agricultural development, animal husbandry, health education, and community development.

In CARE, we recognize the risks, but also the potential that comes with change – and certainly the necessity to actively embrace and drive it.
