The Opportunity

This is a team member role accountable to the Digital Media Platforms department Manager, and working within the Media, Marketing and Communications division.

Vision began 30 years ago in community radio and printed publications. However, today, cross-pollination into digital and video platforms has emerged as a growing need in fulfilling our mission.

This is more than just a job; it is a ministry opportunity with someone with a personal calling and gifting in technical expertise, creativity and visual communications.
