World Vision is the world’s largest international children’s charity. Every day we bring real hope to millions of children in the world’s hardest places as a sign of God’s unconditional love. At World Vision, our aim is simple – to keep every child free from fear. We are also proud to be voted one of the Top 100 ‘Best Not-For-Profit Organisations to Work For 2015’. 

This is a fantastic chance to join a leading charity in Milton Keynes. As Systems Developer, you will provide bespoke supporter letter development in line with requesters’ requirements in relation to our Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system. In addition, you will perform regular system administration tasks as and when needs dictate.

As part of the ICT and Operations team and reporting to the System Development Manager, you will have responsibility for:

Letter development – in order to communicate with World Vision supporters, you will develop complex letters using MS Word to include specific requirements, capture and analysis as well as testing, printer set-up, sign-off and deployment

Data management – investigate issues related to data received and either resolve issues personally or escalate to the relevant third party or appropriate manager. You will also support World Vision staff who are responsible for loading data from third parties

Application administration – assist the development team in the administration of World Vision’s helpdesk application, as and when required.

Degree educated or with equivalent level education, you will need an in depth knowledge of Microsoft Office applications, Word in particular, as well as experience in writing Microsoft VBA in relation to MS Word. Knowledge and hands on experience of CRM systems, particularly in a charity context would be ideal.

With good English and grammar in general, you should be highly detail-conscious, customer-focused, well organised and a great team player. We are also looking for flexibility and someone with a methodical approach who can prioritise a busy workload.  The role will also give you the opportunity to learn new skills and increase knowledge.
