World Vision is an international children’s charity working with children, their communities, and with supporters and partners, in almost 100 countries.
Through long-term development projects, emergency responses and advocacy we’ve helped bring lasting change to millions of children, over more than 60 years. And as a Christian organisation, everything we do is motivated by our faith as we strive to reflect God’s unconditional love.
Work for World Vision UK and you will be part of a truly global Partnership, building brighter futures for vulnerable children.
We’re looking for a Media and Communications Strategy Manager with experience, drive and creativity who can help set an agenda, lead debate and deliver tangible outcomes.
World Vision helps millions of vulnerable children across the world. Tens of thousands of people in the UK support our work. We need you to develop and manage our media and comms strategy to engage audiences and create a powerful voice to influence government, church and development partners.
You’ll know how to achieve cut-through on news stories. You’ll know when to pitch thought-provoking comment on global development matters. You’ll know where to place features that raise concern about issues - like violence, poverty and natural disasters - that destroy childhoods.
You’ll need to react quickly to the news agenda, spot media opportunities and craft effective interventions, working collaboratively across the organisation and building strong relationships with journalists to help raise awareness of World Vision’s work. If your skills and experience match this, we’d love to hear from you!
As an active Christian, this role offers you the opportunity to integrate your Christian faith and be sensitive to its various expressions across cultures and denominations.
In addition to the salary offered, we offer good benefits including pension and generous holiday entitlement.
