The MFO offers a range of employment opportunities to civilians who form the backbone of our mission of peace in support of Egypt and Israel.
Currently, we employ a total of approximately 140 direct hire international civilian staff across our offices in Rome, Tel Aviv, and Cairo and two military bases in Sinai, Egypt. Most international employment contracts are for two-years renewable, with either single or accompanied status, and include free housing and comprehensive medical coverage. MFO international civilian employees may also be eligible for tax reimbursement. The base salary scale for international civilian employees is provided below.
MFO international civilian employees assigned to the Sinai also enjoy free meals, recreational facilities, and annual travel benefits.

They should have the ability to live in a relatively austere environment.
