Who are we?

Humanitarian Operations (HOPE) started as a ‘First Responder Disaster Relief Agency’ on September 1st, 2004, when the Bahamian Government became overwhelmed by the disaster and destruction caused by Hurricane Frances. The team has operated and provided much-needed assistance in every major disaster location since its formation, including the Haitian Earthquake, the Indian Ocean Tsunami, Hurricane Katrina, and the floods in India. It is impossible to quantify the number of lives that have been saved.

Humanitarian Operations is now branching into our second mission; to eradicate educational inequality. We aim to make education widely available to every child in the world, regardless of their background or location, and without prejudice. We are growing our team and looking for like-minded individuals to bring their skills to push our mission forward. We value teamwork, honesty, and flexibility in the workplace, and creating an environment for each individual to flourish is of the utmost importance to us.

What's it like to work at HOPE?

At Humanitarian Operations, we do things a little differently. We are done with corporate hierarchies and work in an agile, start-up, fashion. We celebrate everyone’s individuality and ideas as exactly what they are: valuable! There are no ‘stupid questions’ or ’wrong answers’– all opinions matter.

The work culture at HOPE is collaborative and relaxed. We encourage feedback and support each other to solve problems–always striving to be the best we can be. We are driven by a passion for quality and delivering outstanding products.

We offer creative autonomy in each role and take a collaborative approach to solve problems. We don’t believe in micro-management, we believe in supporting each individual to reach their best potential and finding the most efficient and innovative solutions. HOPE is not just a place of work. It is a place of growth, learning, and development. We are co-creating a new world and having fun whilst doing it. We want to challenge everyone in positive and creative ways every day so we can all evolve together.
