As a Centre Team Leader you will fulfil a vital role in working with the local team to develop international student ministries with and alongside evangelical churches in Paisley. This will involve mobilising volunteers and liaising with church leaders to take the ministry forward.

  • An active member of your local church
  • Willing to raise personal support from churches and individuals

Hours: Up to full-time (35 hours), dependent on personal support.

Salary: This is a personal-support funded role (i.e. you will need to raise sufficient support for your own salary and associated employment costs from mission giving). The salary paid will be pro rata of £25,996 per annum for a 35 hour week. Some local funding may be available as an initial base for further support-raising.
