Location: Witney, near Oxford

Open Doors is a Christian charity, part of Open Doors International, a global NGO network which works in over 60 countries to support and strengthen persecuted Christians. Last year the UK base raised approximately £12 million to provide practical support to persecuted Christians such as food, medicines, trauma care, legal assistance, safe houses and schools, as well as spiritual support through Christian literature, training and resources.

Open Doors is looking for a Christian* Advocacy Assistant to support the advocacy team. Working closely with the Head of Advocacy, you will be responsible for responding to enquiries, communicating with key contacts, providing data and information, focussed research, and various administrative duties. You’ll also liaise with the wider team including PR, marketing, and communications.

You’ll have enthusiasm, great attention to detail, and exceptional interpersonal skills.

This is a fantastic opportunity to gain experience in an advocacy team and develop your skills and experience. If this sounds like your kind of environment to thrive in: God-filled, fun, passionate, and professional, and if you’ve got the talent and determination we need, then we’d love to hear from you.
