OSCAR hosts a Jobs/Opportunities Board and Mission Resources and Events Display at various Christian events throughout the year.
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.
CRE South-West, Exeter
A two day exhibition to be held in February 2022 at Westpoint in Devon. They anticipate around 2000 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 board for CRE (http://creonline.co.uk).
Big Church Day Out 'Expo', West Sussex
A music and activity event for all ages. This year BCDO are running a single two day event in May at Wiston House, nr Steyning, West Sussex. Around 30,000 visitors are expected (www.bigchurchdayout.com)
Sixty-One 'The Experience', Peterborough
Sixty-One is a new 4-day event in early August for 18-30s organised by New Wine and Fusion. 'The Experience' will be a unique and exciting way to engage delegates with the mission of exhibitors. (www.sixtyone.space)

CRE National, Surrey
A three day exhibition held in October at Sandown Park in Surrey. They anticipate around 5000 - 6000 visitors from across all denominations to the exhibition, over the three 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.
"Frequent attenders at New Wine, we always looked at OSCAR's mission board, just in case there was a place for us amongst those who are serving some of the poorest people on earth! But we knew well that the time wasn’t right. But now it is."
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.
