Consulting Opportunities at ARC

Becoming an ARC Consultant

Every year, ARC seeks consultants for various assignments. ARC maintains a specialized database for this purpose that contains information about private-sector consultants interested in consulting work, generally on a short-term basis. This database contains only consultants who specialize in humanitarian assistance.

To apply, you must have at least three (3) years of experience in international humanitarian assistance in a developing country. Your degrees / diplomas and experience must support your ability to help manage (plan, monitor, evaluate) international humanitarian assistance projects.

Minimum Acceptable Daily Rate
A minimum daily rate is the rate you are prepared to accept from ARC as a daily fee for professional services. Daily rates for professional services should normally correspond to the daily rates you have previously charged ARC or other clients for similar or related work.

A daily rate will be confirmed / negotiated when a contract is prepared. ARC follows this procedure to consider the history of a consultant's daily rate and /or experience in ARC's work environment. You may be asked to provide supporting documentation that will corroborate the daily rate proposed.
