UK Strategic Development Director

Job title: Strategic Development Director

Working hours: Full time (37.5 hrs per week)

Location: Wetheringsett, Suffolk

Salary: £34,000–£39,000 p.a.

Closing date: Midday, Wednesday, May 10, 2017.

Interviews: Tuesday, May 23 or Wednesday, May 24, 2017 (you will be invited for interview by May 12)

Are you a committed Christian, business-savvy, and looking for a challenging and exciting role at the forefront of modern cross-cultural mission?

Over two billion people have still not heard about Jesus Christ. We are convinced that no-one should live and die without hearing God’s good news, and therefore we exist to make disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ in communities where he is least known.

Serving In Mission is the UK arm of SIM, and exists to:

  • Support the sending and receiving of missionaries

  • Strengthen churches in cross cultural mission

  • Research, develop and promote new mission opportunities

We send and receive in over 70 countries worldwide, and intentionally form multi-cultural teams in each of our ministry locations. By God’s grace, we are currently seeing good growth in the number of missionaries being sent and received, and we’re actively developing new partnerships aiming to see many more people equipped, prepared and sent.

This role gives you the opportunity to be at the heart of a dynamic and passionate mission agency, working alongside three other directors in shaping and overseeing the work on behalf of the trustees.

The role would suit someone with experience of directing or managing a team, particularly partnerships, communications or strategy. Experience in cross-cultural mission or church ministry would be beneficial, as would an understanding of business principles and their application in this environment.

As the postholder will have an important role in the direction and leadership of the charity, this role carries an occupational requirement for the position to be filled by a committed Christian.
