ADRA serves our brothers and sisters in more than 130 countries without regard to age, ethnicity, politics, or religion.
To fulfill our mission, ADRA employs approximately 5,000 employees and countless volunteers.Because employment and immigration laws in each country differ, most staff must be citizens or permanent residents of the country in which the ADRA offices are located.The central ADRA office is located in Silver Spring, Maryland, USA, and assists network offices with international recruitment. The selection of the most qualified candidate and completion of specific employment contracts are responsibilities of each ADRA office.
At ADRA, we’re committed to equal employment opportunities for all. ADRA does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex, age, national origin, marital status, or handicap/disability in its hiring and employment practices. ADRA exercises its constitutional and statutory rights as a religious organization and employer to prefer members of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in employment.Employees of ADRA who are recruited but not members of the Seventh-day Adventist Church are expected to accept the Seventh-day Adventist philosophy of humanitarian service and practice a lifestyle compatible with ADRA policies and Seventh-day Adventist beliefs.
