We are looking for a mature Christian to join our team, being involved in both the spiritual activities at the centre alongside a practical graphic design role.

This is a fantastic opportunity to work alongside other Christians to creatively promote discipleship and healing. This post may also interest advance level designers that want to get involved at the forefront of Christian mission.

Spiritual Roles

As a part of our team you will participate in daily team prayer and worship meetings, have opportunities to grow in your Christian faith through regular attendance on teaching courses and receive prayer ministry for your own personal development. Other opportunities may include welcoming and/or hosting guests to the centre; training in prayer ministry and opportunities to share short devotional messages with the team and/or guests on events; opportunities for teaching and/or group leading during events with guests.

Practical Roles

Based at Ellel Grange in Lancashire, we are the International Headquarters of Ellel Ministries where the role of Graphic Design is to produce fresh, clear, creative designs for a wide variety of applications for both web and print. Production and work involves:

  • Design of course brochures, flyers, direct mail newsletters, posters, event displays, web banners, conference branded advertisements, email campaign graphics and inspirational social media graphics.
  • Source photography and graphics for projects, as well as manage our own growing stock of photography and video content.
  • A working knowledge of papers, inks and print processes is preferable, managing the printing of materials.
  • An awareness of marketing principals to be able to conceptualise new projects.
  • A creative attitude towards innovating new and contemporary design styles, as we aim to establish a polished look across all our content.
  • Sensitivity in reflecting the tone and character of Ellel Ministries.
  • A willingness to work as a team, able to submit to direction and house style when required.
  • Able to manage schedules effectively working under the direction of our Communications Director, fulfilling time sensitive design requirements for marketing and events.
  • An in-depth command of Adobe InDesign, Photoshop and to a lesser degree, Illustrator.
  • Confidence to liaise with our UK and international teams on publicity requirements.
  • Knowledge of email template design is advantageous.
  • With video content becoming increasingly important, some knowledge of After Effects or other Animation/Motion Effect packages is desirable, but not essential.

Given our ethos as a Christian community, applicants are required to be Christians and have a heart for the healing ministry. Participation in our Christian community and performance of religious devotional duties is an essential aspect of this role. The ideal applicant will have the necessary blend of contemporary creativity, knowledge of design tools and an intuitive feel for interpreting design needs. Strong creative design skills and an ability to work on your own in a pro-active and efficient way and as part of our creative team are essential. Prior experience in design and a strong portfolio of previous work would also be helpful. The role may particularly suit a talented design graduate looking for an opportunity to work in a Christian environment or an experienced hand wanting to get more involved in Christian ministry.

This vacancy is primarily offered as a live-in position with full board accommodation (private bedroom and shared kitchen, bathrooms and living areas along with an appropriate allowance to cover personal expenses). A live out role with remuneration commensurate with experience and our charity allowance structure may also be considered for the right applicant.
