World Vision is an international children's charity working with children, their communities, and with supporters and partners, in almost 100 countries.
Through long-term development projects, emergency responses and advocacy we've helped bring lasting change to millions of children, over more than 70 years. And as a Christian organisation, everything we do is motivated by our faith as we strive to reflect God's unconditional love.
Work for World Vision UK and you will be part of a truly global Partnership, building brighter futures for vulnerable children.
Looking to develop in your career as a digital specialist AND make a difference?
World Vision is launching a new website to better deliver its organisational priorities. This will be fast, mobile-first and build on digital best practices. Website content curation is moving from a centralised web team supporting the organisation, to one where the wider organisation increasingly takesownership of creating, updating and maintaining day-to-day content. The SEO Specialist's role is to support this strategic change - by implementing technical SEO and supporting teams as they learn to use the CMS and build digital capability. A better online user experience that inspires our audiences means World Vision can reach more of the world's most vulnerable children.
You will have experience of on-page and off-page SEO, including technical search engine optimisation tactics, crawl budgets, indexability issues, and be capable of identifying ranking issues, such as indexation, site speed, architecture, redirects, structured markup etc. You therefore need to be adept at working autonomously and taking initiative. You will closely collaborate with our SEO agency and website development team to implement on-page and technical SEO recommendations. This includes supporting the technical SEO roadmap and strategy, and ensuring recommendations from technical reports and site audits are implemented (e.g. link building recommendations, fixing internal broken links, external spam links etc.).
You'll also be confident using web content management systems, with experience in creating or editing web pages that follow digital best practices, knowledge of HTML and CSS, and be comfortable using Google Analytics and Google Console.
By reviewing and editing web pages, you will support teams, ensuring they follow digital best practices. You will also provide training and coaching, building their capability to create webpages in the CMS and implement on-page SEO. This means you will have excellent interpersonal, relationship building and stakeholder management skills, with strong communication skills and an eye for detail. For non-CMS users, you will create and update pages on their behalf.
So, if you're a digital specialist looking for an exciting new challenge that will deliver real transformation for a vital cause - this could be the role for you!
