Supporting Peace

The people of the MFO serve a historic mission in support of peace and regional stability.

Serving alongside the MFO’s military contingents is an exceptionally talented civilian workforce of about 160 people directly hired by the MFO and employed across all MFO locations: Sinai, Representative Offices in Cairo and Tel Aviv, and Headquarters in Rome. The MFO civilian workforce consists of two categories of employee: International Staff and Non-International Technical and Administrative Support Staff.

International Staff

The MFO employs an International Staff of about 130 civilians who are recruited on the open job market. The vast majority of the MFO’s International Staff positions are in Sinai. Of note, just under 20% of the Sinai positions belong to the MFO’s Civilian Observer Unit and are required by Treaty-related provisions to be filled by US citizens. Outside Sinai, there are a small number of International Staff positions: 12 positions at the MFO Headquarters in Rome and a total of three positions in Cairo and Tel Aviv. The MFO accepts applicants of any origin and does not maintain quotas based on nationality.

Non-International Technical and Administrative Support Staff (National Staff)

The MFO employs about 30 staff between the Headquarters in Rome, Italy, and the Representative Office in Tel Aviv, Israel. These people are recruited locally in Italy and Israel and carry out a variety of technical and administrative functions.

Additionally, local contract employees perform a wide range of essential functions in support of the MFO’s military contingents and civilian workforce in Sinai and Cairo.
