CBM co-workers are experts in their field and work locally providing professional assistance to projects throughout the developing world.

Importance of co-workers

CBM does not implement but rather supports programmes that are run by local partner organisations. Today’s achievements of CBM as an international disability and development organisation could not have been accomplished without dedicated and qualified co-workers.

What co-workers do

CBM international co-workers work locally providing professional assistance to project staff and other specialists in the country, advising partner organisations and their projects and giving professional recommendations in accordance with CBM’s policies.  Priority is given to postings where it is possible to train national staff.
