Want to Join the Save the Children Team?

From the minute you walk through the door, you can sense that there’s something special going on at Save the Children. The passion. The focus. The smiles. The buzz. The inspiration. No matter the role, every single person at Save the Children has a critical role in keeping our promises to children – both here in the US, and abroad. The work is ambitious and challenging, delivering real results for children and their families.

Why Save the Children?

It’s great to be out front. Save the Children is the leading independent organization for children in need, with a staff of more than 1,500 people working around the globe. We are on the cutting edge, inspiring breakthroughs focused on achieving immediate and lasting change in children’s lives by improving their health, education and economic opportunities to sustain and support those improvements.

Trust us… it’s not easy doing what we do. Then again, nothing worth doing is ever easy, is it? Our work requires a roll up your sleeves, dig deep, give-it-all-you’ve-got dedication to solving some pretty daunting challenges in the world, and your colleagues will expect it of you. It’s not without reward, though. A career with Save the Children is so much more than working for just any nonprofit organization. Working with Save the Children means investing in children's futures and empowering families to support themselves, with an organization that invests in YOU, too.
