Global Experience – Project Manager

As a project manager with the Global Experience team, you will lead a range of projects through their lifespans, including overseeing schedules and deadlines, determining deliverables, managing communication and progress with team members and stakeholders, overseeing budget and expenses and ensuring high-quality end results. Our simulations take place all over the world and, as such, we need leaders to assist in planning and organising these events.

About OM’s Global Experience Team:
OM’s Global Experience team creates worlds in which participants experience firsthand the needs of those who are suffering. Instead of passively observing a situation, we enable them to take part, safely, in the challenges faced by those in need, and to discover what they can do to make a difference. Global Experience is similar to traditional theatre, except our actors interact directly with guests rather than performing in front of them.

Expectations for all Global Experience team members:
• Respectfully cooperate and collaborate as part of a team.
• Be reliable and do what you say you will do.
• Have a servant’s heart yet be aware of and able to preserve your boundaries.
• Be open to receiving and able to give constructive feedback to one another.
• Choose to be gracious even when under stress.
• Handle conflict directly, openly and with kindness.
• Be willing to think ‘outside the box’ and try new things.
• Have a good sense of humour.

Requirements for project managers:
• Possess strong strategic, analytical and problem-solving capabilities.
• Have excellent people skills, including the ability to coach team members and to handle difficult situations, if necessary.
• Demonstrate proactive communication skills.
• Be organised.
• Foresee potential obstacles to progress and troubleshoot as necessary.
• Have excellent time management and the ability to motivate team members to meet deadlines.
• Be able to oversee and manage multiple teams and tasks at a given time.
• Possess strong attention to detail and a passion for quality.

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