CWS is always looking for talented and committed people to work with us in our Christchurch office. CWS is committed to a diverse and skilled workforce.
CWS does not have overseas-based staff. CWS supports local people to undertake their own development programmes as they are best placed to identify needs and strategies. This builds local expertise and ensures funding is spent in and for the community and not returned to New Zealand through salaries.

- An ability to travel overseas and within New Zealand

This is an opportunity to make a lasting difference for some of the poorest and most marginalised people in our world.
