New Wine 2018

Other minor events - Those who book cards at any of the above events could also be selected, at no extra charge, for display at any of the many smaller events we attend during the year. These include: mission fairs (at various Christian colleges), one day or weekend mission conferences, Christian Union mission evenings, church events etc.

 

"I came across OSCAR a few years back at David's Tent. It has been a valuable resource for finance in missions and has led me to the role I currently have with Transform Europe Network." 

 

BCDO 2018To give your opportunities maximum profile, the jobs board is the main feature of our exhibition stand and we do everything to make them as attractive and accessible as possible. The board includes opportunities from a huge variety of Christian organisations in the UK and abroad, some of whom have other representation at the events and some of them not. Opportunities can include any human resource need you have, including short-term programmes, gap year opportunities, internships, voluntary roles, trusteeships, representatives, study roles etc., as well as more traditional jobs or long-term mission placements.

Each job listing gets its own A6 card which follows a standard format including your logo, job title, description and contact details. You just fill in our job card form and we create the cards for you.

To make this offer accessible to everyone and to provide a good spread of opportunities for the jobs board, we try to keep our costs as low as possible. Our aim is just to cover our costs for exhibiting, therefore our charges for the job cards are very competitive.
