Communications Manager (Saigonchildren)


  • Job Title: Communications Manager
  • Reports to: Head of Fundraising and Communications (HFC)
  • Location: Ho Chi Minh city
  • Application Deadline: Sun, 2024-04-07


Saigonchildren is a UK registered charity working exclusively in Vietnam. The vision for saigonchildren is to work towards the elimination of poverty in Vietnam through education. Our mission is that:
“Saigonchildren enables disadvantaged children in Vietnam to reach their full potential through receiving a quality education relevant to their needs.”
Saigonchildren is committed to the education of disadvantaged children in Ho Chi Minh City and rural provinces across the country. We help by giving them an opportunity to approach adulthood with a good education, in good health and able to sustain themselves and their families.
Education is, we believe, the most lasting and effective way we can help children and their families to escape from the cycle of poverty and it represents a double investment – an investment in the children but also an investment in the future of Vietnam. Saigonchildren has built up a reputation as a strong and effective NGO.
Saigonchildren builds schools where there are none or only the most basic provisions; we provide scholarships and support to individual children from kindergarten to vocational training and third-tier education; we work with children with disabilities and support the development of the local Vietnamese organisations that support them.

Core staff responsibilities:
The Communications will work closely with 6 other core team members of the department. We work as a team where responsibilities and work are shared across the team on a project-by-project basis and where we cover each other when needed, rather than being too precise about who does what. Developing relationships and networks with potential donors and with event participants is essential, as is ensuring events are delivered to saigonchildren standards on deadline. There will therefore be a need for some weekend and evening work in this role.


Interested qualified candidates are invited to send their detailed resumes and cover letter to Ms. Phung Nguyen (
