At Humanitarian Operations, we do things a little differently. We are done with corporate hierarchies and work in an agile, start-up, fashion. We celebrate everyone’s individuality and ideas as exactly what they are; valuable! There are no ‘stupid questions’ or ’wrong answers’, all opinions matter.  We offer creative autonomy in each role and take a collaborative approach to solve problems. We don’t believe in micro-management, we believe in supporting each individual to reach their best potential and finding the most efficient and innovative solutions.  HOPE is not just a place of work. It is a place of growth, learning, and development. We are co-creating a new world and having fun whilst doing it. We want to challenge everyone in positive and creative ways every day so we can all evolve together
