Job Opportunity: Personnel Director

Is God calling you to join our team?

Are you passionate about cross cultural ministry? Are you a warm and caring people person? Have you experienced living in another culture? Are you organised yet flexible? Could you manage the adventure of travel within New Zealand and overseas? Do you have the right to live and work in New Zealand? If so, NZCMS needs you!

We are looking for a Personnel Director to join our team. This role is primarily about offering care and support for a number of our many Mission Partners who are scattered across the planet. That includes providing pastoral care, administrative support, risk management and crisis planning support, and cross-cultural advice. The role also involves intentionally seeking and identifying suitable people as Mission Partners, placing them in locations as set out in the NZCMS Strategic Plan, and developing and maintaining effective relationships with them as well as with the Church in New Zealand and our placement partners overseas.

This is a unique opportunity for an enthusiastic individual, or even a couple who could share the varied responsibilities involved in this role.

The New Zealand Church Missionary Society – NZCMS for short – is an evangelical mission community seeking to mobilise the Church of New Zealand for God’s mission. We are primarily linked to the Anglican Church though we also work with other churches with which we share a common vision. Our passion is to see God’s people taking the whole gospel of Jesus to the whole world.
