Field Personnel Officer – Sahel Project

The work in Africa is expanding at a rapid rate. In order to keep up with the growth, we are looking for someone to assist our Area Personnel Officer with the growing work in the Sahel Region. This role will involve working with people from many different cultures, and being in the middle of what God is doing in Africa!
2 Years
Full Time
As soon as possible
The Africa Area Office is looking for a person who can process all our recruiting, screening and application forms for applicants interested in joining short or long term opportunities with OM in the Sahel Region.

Part of your responsibilities would include providing information via phone or email to the requests that come in and continue providing guidance until an applicant has found the right place within OM considering their background, desires, abilities, expectations, etc.

This role also involves staying in contact with the missionaries, sent out from our office, once they have reached their field of service.

If you are new to OM, we would ask that you go through some of our basic training courses here in Africa in order to get to know more about OM – and especially about OM in Africa.

Live opportunities are unsalaried. Most people joining OM have to raise financial support to cover their living expenses, usually through gifts from home churches and other supporters.
