The Assistant Editor/Writer serves as a day-to-day coordinator for major print pieces, ensuring that content work on publications is proceeding on schedule, and edits and writes content. This includes creating content both from interviews and from material provided from MCC programs around the world in keeping with MCC focus themes and the needs of Communications and Donor Relations. This person is expected to edit and write content in a variety of styles, from the more playful tones of Christmas giving emails or marketing text to letters that are part of our outreach to donors to the magazine-style writing present in A Common Place.
The Assistant Editor/Writer is supervised by the Senior Editor and is part of the MCC U.S. Communications Department.
The department seeks to engage people in and move them to action within MCC's ministry of responding to basic needs and working for peace and justice in the name of Christ. It does this by delivering high-quality, interactive and appropriate communications tools and resources.
Its three goals for communications are to:
• Support MCC ministry
• Engage current and potential supporters and audiences
• Deliver an effective and efficient mix of Communications materials
