Are you passionate about mission? Are you organised and a people person? Do you want to play an essential part in Christians living out their calling to mission overseas? Are you warm, compassionate and a good listener? This might be the role for you!
We’re looking for someone to pastorally support overseas personnel in all stages of their lives serving with us, and to support the well-being of all our staff. They will contribute to achieving our goal to ensure employees thrive in the places they serve and are supported through difficult times.
The role is involved in a number of areas:
- Mission Worker support
- Third-Culture Kid (TCK) support
- Pastoral care and well-being guidance and resources
We are looking for an individual with a desire to enable others to serve in cross-cultural mission overseas, who works well in a team and can work with discretion. The person will work alongside our other Pastoral Care Worker to support our mission workers.
You will have excellent administration and organisational skills, be computer literate with the MS Office suite of software and have good interpersonal skills, with the ability to relate well to all age groups. This is a varied and rewarding role.
The successful applicant will be female and a committed Christian. Due to the fact that BMS already has a male pastoral care worker, and to enable our personnel to have a choice of gender for who they speak to about personal issues in a Christian faith context this is a genuine occupational requirement.
Location: Didcot, Oxfordshire/ Flexible working
This role can be office-based or hybrid. Coming in to our office regularly in Didcot is preferred (for example one or two days a week on average). However, we are happy to appoint a candidate who lives too far from Didcot to attend the office regularly, if they are able to be flexible to come to Didcot as required. The cost of travel to BMS Didcot, whether on a regular basis or infrequently, would be borne by the employee.
