I’m off to South Africa to join the personnel team!! OM South Africa has approximately 400 workers; 260 work within South Africa and 140 internationally. My role in the personnel department is to be involved in every aspect of looking after the volunteers. This will range from recruitment processes; ensuring the well being of each worker; dealing with crisis situations; working with embassies and multi-organisationally; and so much more. OM South Africa has several branches in the country, three of which are in Pretoria, the city where I will be based. Alongside my personnel job, each week I will be involved in the projects run by these branches.
This is a very exciting opportunity for me, as challenging as it will be, because I believe God is calling me into this role. My hope is that God will not only use me in a whole multitude of ways during my time in South Africa but that He will also use this as significant stepping stones for what is to come in my life. I’m really excited to be able to share my South African journey with you!
