The Operation World team usually consists of 6-8 people working full-time on site, with others on a casual or part-time basis, either physically coming into the office, or cyber-commuting. We enjoy the dynamics of being a small team in a larger organization.

WHERE?

We are based at the UK Headquarters of WEC in Gerrards Cross, Buckinghamshire, just on the edge of London. There are many WEC departments based here at Bulstrode; we are just one!

WHAT JOBS?

Areas of focus:

  • research and newsgathering
  • finance and administration
  • data entry and statistical analysis
  • writing
  • copy editing and proofreading
  • graphic and web design
  • information management
  • correspondence and contact management
  • translation

Skills that would prove helpful but are not essential:

  • IT skills (PC and some Linux)
  • SQL & Access programming/development
  • XML
  • Excel (and rest of MS Office Suite)
  • Adobe Creative Suite (Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign)
  • coffee-making & mug-washing (ok, we share that out)

HOW LONG?

There are several different ways you could come over and help. Duration could be anything from long-term (several years) to short-term (1-2 years) to several weeks. Each has its own way of cutting through all the red tape between you and here!

WHO ARE YOU?

Everyone working with Operation World functions as a faith missionary with WEC. This means a few things:

  1. We believe God has called us to this ministry.
  2. We have gone through screening and an orientation at your national WEC HQ.
  3. Your home church supports you in this endeavour.
  4. We trust God alone for our financial needs – no salaries, no soliciting people for donations, just prayer and trusting God.
