If you’d like to use your skills to make a real difference in the world we’d like to hear from you.

MAF is the world’s largest humanitarian air operator.  For almost 75 years we have been helping to change the ending for some of the most isolated people on the planet.  We are looking for an inquisitive, creative communicator to keep our communications up to date by sourcing, analysing, storing and sharing details of our transformational work around the world.

To excel in this role, you will have a genuine and demonstrable interest in geopolitics or international development, along with social media expertise and a way with words.  You will be inquiring, original and a strong communicator with experience of writing in a variety of styles to create and present engaging stories and ideas. Able to thrive under pressure, you’ll be a team player with the ability to plan and work in a complex matrix team, multiple stakeholder environment. 

There is an occupational requirement for the job holder of this position to be a committed Christian.  Additional information is available on request.
