Our team at Open Doors is united in our love for Jesus Christ and His Commission. When working at Open Doors, you will get the chance to strengthen the faith of Christians all over the world. You will help share the stories of our suffering brothers and sisters through innovation and design.


We asked our people their thoughts on working with Open Doors – here is what they had to say:

  • “Working for Open Doors means being challenged and encouraged in your faith every day! It’s a privilege to be in a job that helps strengthen the global body of Christ.”
  • Seeing and hearing real stories of persecution has forced me to see my walk with Christ in a new way.”
  • “Exclusive experiences to travel and meet with persecuted believers, learning many invaluable lessons along the way.”

Working with us also provides the opportunity to be a part of regular team devotions, access to Christian counselling and mentoring, as well as coming together for bi-annual team days for fellowship, prayer and worship.
