Time to change the world for the better?

Our job at World Vision is to work with our supporters transform the lives of the world’s most vulnerable children.  No matter what element of World Vision’s work a supporter is interested, we want to bring that to life for them on their screen, on their phone and throughout their digital life.

Why work at World Vision? I asked a few people what they thought…

That’s where you come in.  You see, until now, we’ve worked with external agencies to deliver those digital experiences and digital products.

But digital is now far too important a part of our everyday lives to be outsourced, rather, we have to start with digital when we’re thinking about any supporter experience. That’s why we’re creating a brand new team.  We’re building the capability to deliver our own digital platforms and to develop them rapidly using the latest best practice from tech companies and startups.

If you are a .NET web developer, and you want be part of a fast moving team using test driven development, CI/CD, remote working and flexible hours to create amazing experiences for world vision’s UK supporters, if you want to work with our colleagues in a hundred countries and see the impact of your work every day, if you want to transform the lives of the world’s most vulnerable children, then get in touch today.

We can’t wait to hear from you.

Agile Insights from Cancer Research UK

With Greg Franklin @gfranklin and Giulia Merlo @giuliavmerlo.

I recently had the opportunity to sit down for the Digital Collective Podcast with Greg Franklin and Giulia Merlo Agile Lead and Service Design Lead at Cancer Research UK.

The full episode is linked from the bottom of this page and is well worth a listen. Over the course of the conversation we talked about:

  • Investing in an in-house digital capability is a big deal, a significant skill shift and change to the way the organisation works. CRUK is a long way through and has a lot to teach the sector.
  • The benefits of Agile for charities include speed increases, better collaboration and closer working relationships with end users, but the structure is important.
  • Outputs or outcomes? Not just delivering the thing that we want to deliver but following through and understanding the impact that has is the key to transformation.
  • Service Design is the thinking around how the user’s individual interactions and experiences link together to create their reality of your organisation.
  • The charity sector is headed for disruption, digital transformation is only just getting started.
