Reporting to the Nottingham 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 Sutton Bonington. 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: Minimum 14 hours, up to full-time (35 hours), dependent on level of available finance (i.e. sufficient money for your own salary and work-related expenses from mission giving).

Salary:  The salary will be pro rata of £30,000 per annum for a 35-hour week. With training and support, the post holder will raise the costs of salary, employment, training and work-related costs by developing a network of personal prayer and financial supporters (churches and individuals).
