Jobs at Merlin

Please note that Merlin is currently recruiting a Director - see this link for further information.

As of 16 July 2013, Merlin is joining Save the Children to create a world-class humanitarian health force for children and their families living in some of the toughest places in the world. By combining Merlin’s unique network of frontline health workers with Save the Children’s life-saving work in over 120 countries, more children, families and communities affected by disaster or conflict will be reached. Both organisations are really excited by this opportunity to dramatically increase our reach and impact for children and their families.

For those teams transferring as part of this plan, our expectation is that there will be a phased transition of Merlin’s overseas programme operations and head office teams to Save the Children, which we are aiming to complete within 18 months. During this time Merlin’s life-saving work for children and their families around the world will continue. New appointment to our Head Office in London will be made on fixed term contracts


Merlin has been an essential part of the humanitarian response to some of the most serious emergencies in recent history. To continue doing this, we need to have people who share our vision, and want to make a positive difference with us.
