Throughout his career in the sector, Gordon emphasised that many of the challenges for aid workers remain the same: "Do more with less, find innovative solutions and navigate complex contexts." He adds, however, that "recent events have shown an increasing danger for aid workers as traditional concepts of impartiality, neutrality, and independence are under increasing stress."
Gordon is a Member of both RedR UK and RedR Australia, and speaks highly of his RedR Membership: "RedR has given me the opportunity to undertake high quality and relevant training in the aid sector. I find RedR a great networking opportunity and it gives my CV some additional credibility."
Gordon recently accepted a position as a Humanitarian Adviser, working with the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
