Who we are

Since 1990 cinfo has been connecting individuals working, or seeking work, in international cooperation with organisations recruiting in the fields of development cooperation, humanitarian aid, economic cooperation and the promotion of peace and human rights. We support both individuals and institutions.

cinfo brings together people, organisations and occupations. This contributes significantly to the ability of organisations working internationally for a more peaceful and just world to achieve their goals.

  • We forge links between recruitment, career development and support for intercultural competencies in the field, making us unique as specialists for careers and jobs in international cooperation. Our extensive experience, and our commitment to constantly developing and adapting our sector- and context-specific knowledge to meet emerging demands, provides you with an invaluable service.
  • We are at the cutting edge of the field of international cooperation. We know our clients’ needs and the major trends in the international cooperation labour market. We lay the foundations for making the right decisions in recruiting and training employees and in managing careers.
  • We pave the way for both individual professional development and human resource development within organisations by proposing dynamic events where people can meet to exchange ideas and experiences.
