HR and Administration Officer at CBM Global Disability Inclusion

CBM Global works alongside people with disabilities living in the world’s poorest places to fight poverty and exclusion, to transform lives and build inclusive communities.

We are driven by our Christian values and our vision for an inclusive world in which all people with disabilities can enjoy their human rights and achieve their full potential. We do this because people with disabilities living in poverty face stigma, violence and discrimination, and have reduced access to health care, rehabilitation, assistive devices, safe and accessible living environments, education and employment. In emergencies, people with disabilities are often the worst impacted and face a higher risk of being injured or losing their lives during a disaster.
