We're hiring!

Theirworld is growing! Join a brilliant global team of campaigners, world-class researchers, dedicated advocates and programme experts working together to give every child the best start in life.

Whether we are running pilot programmes to get Syrian refugees into school, or giving girls access to empowering code clubs, or building global campaigns to get world leaders to keep their promises, Theirworld offers you an incredible opportunity to be part of instigating real change.

We’re making a lot of noise and decision makers are listening.

From our outstanding research on safe childbirth to ground-breaking campaigns for global education and safe schools for girls and boys, we are working tirelessly to build the evidence, knowledge and demand for changes that transform the lives of millions of children and young people around the world.

Theirworld is an innovative charity which helps children to unlock their potential. We would love to hear from you if you are interested in working with us in any of the following areas:

  • Project Manager / Senior Project Manager, Education in Emergencies
  • Global Youth Ambassador Project Coordinator
  • Project / Campaign Coordinators
  • Finance Coordinator
  • Executive Assistant

See below for more details.

We have so much to be proud of but the task ahead is still huge and needs even more commitment and action if we are to overcome the barriers faced by children every day.

Our campaigns have so far been backed by more than 10 million people globally, we have built an inspiring network of Global Youth Ambassadors in more than 85 countries and we work with NGOs and businesses interested in real change.

But we always need more dedicated and inspiring people to take us to the next level.
