For remote communities impoverished by formidable physical barriers, the service MAF provides with their fleet of light aircraft is invaluable.  We enable patients, relief workers, produce, medical supplies and Christian workers to be safely transported over mountains, forests, rivers, deserts and impassable roads, bringing transformational help and hope to places where flying is not a luxury – it is a lifeline

Key responsibilities are to deliver income targets for an agreed portfolio of small businesses and trusts.  Your role will be to actively develop and manage the portfolio including writing proposals, undertaking research, networking, and building relationships with individuals and trusts.

Qualifications, Skills & Experience

The person we are looking for will need to become knowledgeable about the work we undertake, have persuasive communication skills, work to agreed targets and be a team player.
