Digital Marketing Trustee vacancy

Digital Marketing Trustee

Location: Remotely/UK 

Unpaid role 

Applications Deadline: Monday the 28th of March

Children Change Colombia (CCC) is seeking a new Digital marketing Trustee based in the UK to join our dynamic team that operates in the UK and Colombia.

Children Change Colombia is the UK’s largest charity with 30 years’ experience working exclusively in Colombia. We believe that, with the appropriate support, Colombian children can claim their right to live safely and in peace and demand that the adults responsible for protecting their rights do so – in this way, children can change Colombia. Last year celebrated 30 years of empowering children! Over the last three decades, CCC has helped more than 65,000 children to overcome the trauma of poverty, armed conflict, displacement, and the lack of education, and has invested 13 million pounds in more than 50 multiannual projects all across the country.

We seek to complement the work of others and avoid duplication whenever possible. One of our key aims is to work on issues that are neglected by others. Many of the projects we support are pioneering services for children in areas where such services do not already exist. For instance, we work in schools in remote villages near the Pacific coast where state institutions are weak and few NGOs operate. In cases where other organisations do operate services for children, we collaborate with our partners to help them identify these organisations and then determine how they can work to complement and improve existing services.
