MSF employs people for a broad range of jobs and skills levels who all ensure that MSF can deliver quality health care to those who need it – all over the world.
To do this, we recruit the best, most committed professionals. We often work in locations that lack accessible information on common market practice, cost of living and decent living wages.
MSF wants to ensure that our mandate can be carried out respecting the highest quality standards and accountable use of funds, while at the same time our employees receive fair compensation and local regulations and rules are respected, and without harming the market norms.
There are economic, social and legal reasons why benchmarking is essential for us: employees can provide for their families, talent is attracted and retained, avoidance of disruption of the labour market, MSF complies with labour laws…
MSF surveys have been systematically conducted through a combination of field and desk research since 2012.
We analyse the local labour market, the competitiveness of salaries and estimate the minimum living wage as well as compliance with internal and external policies.
