Operation Christmas Child UK (OCC) has implemented a strategic volunteer ministry, investing in teams of volunteers who will multiply themselves and hugely extend the reach of OCC’s mission.
OCC is the world’s largest shoebox appeal where Samaritan’s Purse, together with local churches here and overseas, distributes from the UK hundreds of thousands of gift-filled shoeboxes to children in need overseas and in so doing demonstrates God’s love in a tangible way while sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ.
A resourceful and dedicated Regional Volunteer Manager is needed to recruit, select, equip, and lead teams of volunteers throughout Yorkshire, Humberside, East Midlands and North East England.
You will be passionate about developing others towards highly effective ministry, teamwork and increased personal competency.
You will be confident to take initiative with people and projects and have proven people and project management skills, administrative and organisational skills.
You will be effective at directly engaging churches to participate in OCC in areas not yet covered by volunteers, to model and coach effective engagement activity to volunteers.
This role is based in region and so prospective candidates should currently live in the region and provide their own transport. Given the existing and potential supporter base in South and West Yorkshire, it is strongly preferred that the role holder lives in or close to this area.
In accordance with the Equality Act of 2010 and due to both the nature and context of the role there is an ‘occupational requirement’ for the post holder to be a committed Christian. The job holder should be committed to the purpose of Samaritan’s Purse and be able to demonstrate enthusiasm for the Christian purposes of the organisation and be able to live out, hold to, support and contribute to its Christian ethos.
