Job description

We're looking for an energetic  and passionate programmes assistant who can support our overseas work on social justice and development, as well as lead our overseas volunteering programme with partner organisations across Africa, Asia and Latin America. 

The ideal candidate will have a keen and demonstrable interest in international development issues,  some basic understanding of faith-based action, and some knowledge or experience of overseas volunteering. The candidate will also have the ability to work with a range of overseas partnerships from schools and church based groups, to larger programme partners. The purpose of this role is to use the knowledge produced by partners in various internal and external communications that could further improve our work and the work of our partners.

Jesuit Missions is the international development and mission office of the Jesuits in Britain. For over 60 years, we have been supporting the international work of Jesuits in Africa, Asia and Latin America. With tens of thousands of Jesuits and lay partners working across the world, there is no shortage of work to be done. Our priorities are to respond to the impact of global warming on marginalised people; to inspire young people to become actively engaged in working for a more just world; and to campaign for climate justice.

We provide financial support for projects in poor communities across the world. We work in schools and parishes in the UK promoting reflection and action in line with the Jesuit commitment "to serve the faith through the promotion of justice." 

Our small team of nine staff is based in South London. We have an annual income of c£1 million and lots of ambition to grow our work.

As the Jesuits are a global religious order, we’re also part of an international network which creates real opportunities for collaboration so that we can maximise our impact. 

If you'd like to be part of our life-changing and inspiring work, we'd love to hear from you.
