A. CCF is a large NGO with a diverse workforce. We have many technical / specialist roles in our core programs of education, leadership, healthcare, childcare, vocational training and community outreach. In addition, we are always looking for skilled professionals to take up support services roles related to IT, HR, procurement, finance and administration.

A. CCF is passionate about building a skilled and sustainable Cambodian workforce to deliver on our vision and mission long term. As such, Cambodian employees fill the majority of our vacancies. CCF does hire a small number of foreign staff, but only when specialist skills are not available in Cambodia or if the position is required to interact mostly with international visitors or manage overseas projects / processes. Essentially, we recruit local and/or foreign staff depending on the requirements of the position. Advertised positions will outline the job/language requirements clearly in the selection criteria and job posting.
A. For more information about the role please email the recruitment team in the first instance at [email protected]. The team will respond to your queries or refer you to the hiring manager for job specific queries.
A. One of CCF’s strategic priorities is to build the capability of our staff. We know that our staff are critical to our ongoing success and the quality of services that we can provide the children and families involved in our programs. CCF has an Organizational Development Team who is driving professional development for individual staff and leaders. CCF has an integrated Leadership Development Framework that outlines development opportunities for staff across varying levels of leadership. We also identify job specific development needs and support training in support of enhanced performance for our staff. Education and training are valued very heavily in Cambodia and CCF provides local staff with the opportunity to access an annual scholarship allowance (equivalent to one month salary) in support of further education and training.
A. CCF is committed to providing long term career advancement for our employees. We structure annual career planning for staff and work with individuals to identify career pathways (especially for leadership roles). Staff are strongly encouraged to express interest in higher level positions and individual development plans support learning and development in preparation for future roles.
A. The majority of staff at CCF work 8 hours per day, 5 days per week. That said, in Cambodia it is normal to work a 6 day week with public school and other business hours including Saturday work. CCF teachers work 6 days per week, as does many of our program staff who work directly with the kids or the community. Our drivers, security guards and other support staff may work alternative rosters to allow for us to provide safety and security 24 hours a day, 7 days per week. The hours of work are outlined in job advertisements and/or employment contracts and will be discussed with applicants through the interview process.
A. The majority of our CCF offices and facilities are located in the Steung Meanchey community on the outskirts of Phnom Penh (south east of the centre). Our Head Office is the CCF Corporate Building with many of our facilities surrounding the nearby CCF Community Centre.
A. CCF provides local staff with entitlements in accordance with Cambodia Labor Law (Prakas). This includes 18 days annual leave and paid public holidays (average of 25 per year).

Additional benefits for local Cambodian staff include access to a Provident Fund, Bonus (One Monthly Salary) at Khmer New Year, Personal Accident Insurance, National Social Security Fund, Education / Training Scholarship Allocation (equivalent to One Month Salary), and phone.

That said, foreign staff working in Cambodia will receive NGO Visa, training support, relocation support (if employed from their home country and moving to Cambodia purely for the CCF role) and medical / health insurance (including medical evacuation to Bangkok or Singapore for emergency treatment).
CCF invests heavily in training and development and employs specialists to help drive professional and leadership development for staff. Staff have access to unique learning and development opportunities, international experts and career planning.
