Eight employees describe what it’s like to work at MSH.

“Eight weeks ago I could not have imagined how much I would learn over the course of this summer at MSH. This internship has allowed me to develop new interpersonal, organizational, and technical skills that I will undoubtedly apply in my future academic and professional endeavors.”

Working at MSH


Our staff work in over 30 countries, with the majority of our employees living and working outside the US. We provide a comprehensive reward package within our various countries that include salary, incentive opportunity, and benefit programs. Our programs are of the caliber that encourages the recruitment and retention of highly qualified and motivated staff.  Providing supportive programs to meet the needs of our employees and their families around the world is a priority for us. Our benefit offerings vary from country to country in alignment with mandated requirements and local norms; eligibility for specific programs depends on one’s employment status. Our offerings may include health, retirement/long-term savings, leave/time-off benefits, and cash allowances/payments based on local norms.

Note: Our total rewards programs and benefit plans are reviewed regularly and may not be construed as an employment contract, either expressed or implied. We reserve the right to add, modify, or delete any aspects of the benefits package at any time, at its sole discretion.

Professional Development

We are committed to the development of its employees, and track staff development as one of our strategic roadmap goals. We consider staff development to be a partnership between the organization and the individual. As part of the annual performance development cycle, each employee creates a professional development plan and works with their supervisor to identify opportunities for growth. These may include anything from online learning and certificate programs that we leverage through our relationship with LINGOS, to stretch assignments that support employees as they take on greater levels of responsibility as they help us deliver on our mission.

Ethics & Conduct

MSH is committed to promoting a culture of legal compliance, as well as ethical conduct.

In order to achieve the mission of saving lives and improving health, MSH must consistently demonstrate that it is committed to conducting its business with high ethical standards by dealing fairly and honestly with all parties and strongly condemning and actively preventing fraud and unethical acts. By adhering to the highest standards of ethical conduct MSH demonstrates to donors/clients that we can be trusted to do the right thing when managing their resources and demonstrates to beneficiaries that we are worthy partners in building strong, resilient, sustainable health systems.

Equal Opportunity & Affirmative Action

MSH is an equal opportunity employer and will not discriminate against any employee or applicant for employment on the basis of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, creed, national origin, age, veteran status, or disability unrelated to job requirements. MSH will take affirmative action to ensure that qualified applicants are employed and that employees are treated without regard to their race, age, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, veteran and disability status. In compliance with U.S. Department of Labor Executive Order 11246, Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, and Section 4212 of the Vietnam Era Readjustment Assistance Act, MSH has developed and maintains an affirmative action program and plan.

Much of MSH’s work is funded either directly or indirectly by the US government. We comply with federal procurement regulations in our business practices and with USAID regulations relating to recruitment of staff and consultants.

MSH’s business activities are at all times conducted in accordance with government regulations on procurement integrity.
