At Saferworld recruiting high quality candidates for our vacancies is crucial.  PCDN is one of our top sources, reaching, as it does, far and wide amongst the peacebuilding/conflict prevention community. Marie Aziz, Human Resources Manager, Saferworld


PCDN played a key role in our hiring process, allowing us to connect with and hire an excellent candidate. When it comes to peacebuilding and development, PCDN is the most comprehensive network and resource that we as practitioners have at our fingertips.Meeghan Zahorsky, Associate Consultant, Vera Solutions


In a bind to find a specialized consultant on short notice, we recently posted to the Peace and Collaborative Development Network.  Within a matter of days we had a sizable pool of candidates for the position, and within two weeks we secured from amongst them someone with just the right credentials for the job.  Thank you PCDN. Tarek Massarini, Program Manager,Salam Institute for Peace and Justice


What I like the most about this network is its diversity. Not one person, institution, or epistemology, ranks above others due to geography. PCDN has kept me informed, allowed me to voice some opinions, and most importantly, has allowed me to carry out two successful job searches in the past two years. The quality and diversity of candidates that applied to work in my department has just been outstanding. Before posting my job advertisement to PCDN, I had a handful of serious applications. PCDN increased the application numbers by more than 400%. The diversity of the candidates allowed me to interview qualified candidates from all over the world, hence reflecting in my department the diversity of our student population at UPEACE. I find PCDN to be an invaluable job search resource. Dr. Victoria Fontan, Associate Professor, Head, Department of Peace and Conflict Studies, University for Peace
