Hiring National Staff

The repeated Staff Planning and Organization Chart exercises you do with the leadership team will give you a list of roles that must be filled in the medium and long term. Most of these will be filled with staff you hire locally.

If there is a local CRS country program with HR staff, you should work closely with them to hire staff. Ask them for their procedures and forms. In fact, once you’ve told them what you need, they may be able to do most of the work for you.

If there is no CP, work closely with the regional office.

Meanwhile, we outline the hiring process and detail each of the steps, supplying the forms when applicable. In the absence of a local HR office or procedures supplied by the regional office, you should follow these steps and use these forms.
