We are a movement of students sharing and living out the good
news of Jesus Christ. Locally. Nationally. Globally.

IFES ministry is supported behind the scenes by International
Services based in Malaysia, the UK and the USA.

Do you want to tell the stories of student ministry from a multicultural network of passionate followers of Christ? Do you have an eye for detail, an excitement for crafting a strong message, and the ability to communicate cross-culturally? 

We are looking for an enthusiastic communications professional to join our International Services team in the UK. Reporting to the Head of Communication, you will lead the content production of the Global Communications team, distributed across a range of communications channels. You will produce inspiring content, researching, writing, and developing stories that lead to increased stakeholder engagement. You will also contribute to the conceptualization of giving campaigns and work closely with our Digital Media Assistant to create and implement social media strategy and content.  

You should have experience of writing targeted marketing copy, ideally within the charitable sector. You will have well-developed interpersonal skills and an ability to communicate effectively with people from different cultural contexts. You must be able to work both independently, and collaboratively within and across teams. 

If you recognise the importance of evangelical student ministry, are confident in your ability to work internationally, and are looking for a challenging role in a forward-thinking team we would love to hear from you.
