OSCAR hosts a Jobs/Opportunities Board and Mission Resources and Events Display at various Christian events throughout the year.
These events are now all past for 2023, but watch this space for 2024!
We are planning to have an opportunities board at the following major Christian conferences and festivals during this year and a Mission Resources and Events Display at all except Bangor Worldwide.

A two day exhibition held in November at Cranmore Park, Birmingham. They anticipate visitors from across all denominations to the exhibition, over the two days. Many of these are already full-time Christian/church workers and/or key decision makers and influencers in churches. OSCAR runs the official jobs/opportunities board for CRE. There will also be a special 'Mission on the Map' area for mission organisations. (http://creonline.co.uk)

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."
To 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 short-term programmes, gap years, interns, volunteers, trustees, reps, students etc. as well as more traditional jobs or long-term roles.
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.
