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.


We are based just north of London, on the campus of All Nations Christian College.


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)


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!


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.
