The World Council of Churches seeks young communication professionals from its member churches and ecumenical partners to work for the upcoming 10th Assembly, from 23 October to 10 November 2013 in Busan, Republic of Korea.
This will be an opportunity for skilled young communicators to work with a diverse team of communication professionals from around the world.

By inviting young professionals, the WCC hopes to include their unique perspective in sharing stories from the assembly with audiences across the globe. In addition to gaining valuable communication experience, these positions also offer an opportunity for ecumenical formation.

The young professionals should have 3 to 5 years’ experience in the field of media and communications, either with the church or general media.
Applicants must be between the ages of 22 and 30 years old. They will also need to demonstrate strong involvement in church, youth or ecumenical activities in their community.
Fluency in speaking and writing English is essential. Fluency in Korean, French, German or Spanish will be an asset for some positions.

Applicants are invited to review the job profiles and submit a letter of intention and curriculum vitae to Linda Hanna at the WCC Communication Department no later than 31 January.
