IT gets you out of bed in the morning and pays the bills, but are you looking for much more from your job?

Mary’s Meals is a fast-growing international charity, currently providing over one million hungry and impoverished children in 12 countries with a daily school meal.

We are looking for a Graphic Designer to work within the International Communications team to ensure Mary’s Meals’ visual brand is engaging and consistent, designing materials for use by both Mary’s Meals International and for affiliate countries and support the introduction of new brand/style guidelines.

This could include the Mary’s Meals annual report, volunteer packs, charity credentials, brochures, leaflets and posters that will uphold our key messages and values, and make a credible and compelling case for the charity’s approach in helping to lift impoverished and marginalised children in the developing world out of poverty.

We are especially interested in hearing from designers who also love working within or are interested in doing more in the digital content space.

This might mean designing social media assets such as infographics, getting involved with website design or using your video editing skills.

You will require excellent visual communication skills and ability to present ideas and create designs with high visual impact while working to tight deadlines.

In addition, you will have exceptional creative flair and an innovative approach to all design projects from concept creation to finished product.

It is essential that you have excellent project co-ordination skills with the ability to manage a busy workload and multiple projects, excellent communication, organisation, prioritisation and time management skills. A Degree or HND qualified or equivalent level professional experience is also essential.

If you have the ability to design compelling content, and create strong processes to underpin this, to tell the story of Mary’s Meals, with the aim of attracting new supporters, developing relationships with existing supporters and reinforcing the values of the organisation to make a difference to the lives of thousands of children across the world, we’d love to hear from you.

By contributing to the work of Mary’s Meals, you will become part of a worldwide movement of people who will not accept that any child in this world of plenty should endure a day without a meal.
