Want to change the world?
If you want your life and work to make a meaningful difference to the world, we’ve got a place for you.
Power to Change exists to help fulfill the Great Commission in Australia and beyond.
Our mission is to connect, build and send Christ-centered disciple makers who launch and lead spiritual movements.
About the role
Our recent strategic review revealed the need to bolster our communications in social media in order to achieve our national goals. In essence, this is to cultivate a strong and active community engaged with us in the mission. The communications audience varies depending on purpose. In some communication arenas the audience are under 25. But other groups may be donors or fellow labourers. We invite all to be Change Makers by investing their LIFE. LIFE being Labour, Influence, Finances or Expertise.
We have a team dedicated to communications and marketing in Power to Change in which this role will reside. In Power to Change we have over twenty social media accounts. Just a couple of them are led by people at our HQ. These accounts may be national or local. Some of the work is direct – you determine the ongoing communication. But some of the work is in training and equipping others who are the administrators.
God is working through our extensive team around Australia. We want to represent creatively and excellently the work God is doing. We want to give like-minded Christians the opportunity to serve God and make the most of our many resources to be change-makers in their sphere of influence. We invite people to invest their LIFE in God’s kingdoms work. LIFE being labour, influence, finance and expertise.
In a small team people play multiple roles so experience in writing, graphics or marketing concepts would be beneficial.
Good communication skills are needed to work well in a small team. Our Headquarters is in Mulgrave Melbourne. While it would be advantageous to work sometime out of the HQ it is possible to be based elsewhere in Australia. This is a new national role so would be free to flex your innovation muscles in helping us make the position work. Our team is already scattered, although the major live in Melbourne. Our existing enthusiastic social media part-time person, whom this role will collaborate with, lives near the HQ.
People are at the heart of what we do, and so is this role. We need someone who can communicate our heartbeat, connecting donors with field missionaries and everyone in between. We need someone who can keep their finger on the pulse, engage our community and lead the charge in developing great social media tools for donor stewardship. You’ll be part of a team to brand, message and execute our social media strategy.
Essential skills and experience
Social Media, communications, marketing or social media degree preferred.
