Samaritan’s Purse is a Christian international relief organization providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world.  Since 1970, Samaritan’s Purse has helped meet the needs of people who are victims of war, poverty, natural disasters, disease, and famine with the purpose of sharing God’s love through His Son, Jesus Christ.

One of the ways Samaritan’s Purse Canada (SPC) is showing God’s love is through the international distribution of gift-filled shoeboxes packed by Canadians through our Operation Christmas Child (OCC) Ministry.  We are looking for a Marketing Advisor who will be responsible for the strategic planning, development, and implementation of all promotional materials and activities for OCC.

  • Evaluate all promotional needs for OCC events and activities

As an integral member of the OCC department, this person should have a heart for evangelism and will help SPC carry out its mission and objectives through participation in daily prayer ministry. The successful candidate will work out of the Calgary Head office in a full-time one year contract, with the possibility of extension.
