Global Content Officer

The Opportunity

Save the Children International has an exciting opportunity for you to join our team as the Global Content Officer at London, UK or any existing Save the Children Regional or Country office location.


As a global movement Save the Children has exceptionally ambitious advocacy, supporter growth, fundraising and programme delivery targets designed to maximise the positive impact that we can have for children across the world.

Powerful and engaging content is critical to achieving this ambition, whether across fundraising targets, when lobbying for political change, or raising brand and media profile. We are looking to transform the way we tell stories, creating memorable interactions with supports through high quality, emotional, authentic global creative content.

The Global Creative Content Unit (GCCU) is a small and nimble team, providing children’s stories and supporter engagement content for Save the Children Members offices around the world.

As the Global Content Officer, you will maintain overview of all the projects/programmes across Save the Children and support team members in delivering information and content queries and requests to all members. You will help to produce fundraising and campaigns materials, creating captioned photography collections, facts, stats and case studies.

In the event of a major humanitarian emergency, the role holder will be expected to work outside the normal role profile, to help deliver content in partnership with the Global Media Unit and be able to vary working hours accordingly.

  • Commitment to the best practice in ethical and production values for content gathering – constantly seeking to improve standards to ensure Save the Children leads the way for the industry.

  • Commitment to Save the Children’s child protection policy.


  • Experience of working for an international NGO or in international development context
  • Knowledge of digital, fundraising, marketing products and channels.
  • In-depth understanding of different types of content and uses
  • Experience in using InDesign to design infographics and photo-shop for imagery.
  • Experience of online archiving systems for photos and film.
  • Passion for following market trends across NGO, media, corporate, consumer sectors – sharing inspiring ideas.
  • Good working knowledge of at least one non-English language (in particular Arabic, French, Spanish)

We can offer circa £30,000 per annum (If based in UK) with an option of flexible working hours. If the role is based outside of the UK, National T&C (including pay) will apply.

This role can be based in London or any existing Save the Children International Regional or Country office location on approval, provided the successful candidate has proof of eligibility to work from the preferred location.
