We are one the world’s largest child focused development organisations, with over 45,000 staff in almost 100 countries, serving 100 million people annually. We work on every level to achieve our goal of child well-being – from international activism to checking in on children face-to-face.
Our people are our greatest asset. Each staff has unique experience and skills - and it’s our job to provide them with the training and opportunities they need to make their greatest contribution to our work worldwide.
According to our latest staff survey, over 80% of staff who responded are excited about the future, ready to put in extra effort, proud to work for World Vision and ready to recommend us to others as a great employer.
