At World Vision USA we invite people to positively impact the lives of the world’s most vulnerable children through charitable giving. Our recipe includes love of all people, thriftiness, and targeting the root causes of poverty to bring about human transformation so people can experience the fullness of life Jesus promises in John 10:10. With us, every 60 seconds a family gets water, a hungry child is fed, and a family gets the tools to overcome poverty. If you’re ready to connect your skills to this kind of life-changing work, then look no further.
02 The Job As a Senior Multimedia Storyteller working within our award-winning internal creative agency, your experience will get put to use on work that’s close to the heart of God and in the spirit of Matthew 25:34-40. You’ll work alongside a team of award-winning writers and photographers who serve as the bridge between the front lines of our global work and our supporters, telling the stories that few organizations can. Each week will be different, and you’ll use an array of writing, editing, photography, and multi-media skills to develop stunning content that attracts, educates, motivates, and affirms our supporters. If variety is something you enjoy, and you have a range of skills that you equally want to exercise and grow in, then this is a great fit for you. Some days, you’ll use your journalism skills to interview donors, partners, program participants, and experts, and then you’ll write their stories in compelling ways for different end uses across the organization—magazine and digital articles, Q&As, listicles, social media posts, videos, FAQs, and more. Other days, you’ll also put your editing skills to use by producing content using stories, photos, and videos from our communication staff located around the world. Other weeks, you’ll be collaborating with marketers and storytellers to create World Vision’s award-winning semi-annual print magazine and monthly content email newsletter. You’ll also work closely with our digital team as we seek to improve and optimize content based on online user behavior, site analytics, and search trends in order to reach new audiences and increase engagement. Come roll-up your sleeves with us and create content that moves people’s hearts and minds to action!
You’ll be joining the organization that flipped the script on child sponsorship with the introduction of Chosen®, recognized by AdWeek, MediaPost, Upworthy, Christianity Today, and winner of two 2020 ANA REGGIE Awards. And fundamental to your life: you’re inspired by your faith in Jesus to love God and love your neighbors. Does this sound like you? Want to be a part of creating the future of this incredible organization? We’d love to hear from you.
