Passing the ICRC's language tests

09-09-2013 Feature

Many people find the ICRC foreign language tests a daunting prospect. In this film we try to answer the most common questions that candidates have about the tests.

Working for the International Committee of the Red Cross is all about people, and working with people means communication. ICRC international staff generally need to know how to communicate in more than one language, regardless of the position they apply for. In this short film, we explain the language level we look for in candidates applying to work with the ICRC. We describe the format of our tests and how to prepare for them - and what to do if you're not successful first time.
