CWS is always looking for talented and committed people. 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.
CWS is inviting nominations for the position of National Director.
Are you passionate about pursuing a world without poverty and injustice. Are you committed to building peaceful, inclusive partnerships and the delivery of effective, life changing international development?
Christian World Service (CWS) is seeking an energetic, strategic, National Director to lead their small, dynamic organisation. This role is critical as we work with, and on behalf of, our partner churches to challenge and address poverty and injustice, enable development work overseas (particularly in the Pacific), respond to natural disasters and build movements for positive change.
We are seeking a visionary leader with a strong commitment to global issues, proven experience in organisational leadership, and skills in the management of people, fund raising, and finances. An ability to relate the Christian gospel to the work of CWS is essential, as is the ability to communicate and engage with a wide range of audiences.
If you are seeking an opportunity to make a lasting difference for some of the poorest and most marginalised people of our world, this could be the role for you! CWS is an inclusive workplace, and we welcome applications from people from all sections of the community. This position is currently based in Christchurch and is full time 1.0 FTE, 37.5 hours per week.
A job description and further information can be obtained from Kate Boardman, CWS Board Member, via: email@example.com.
Applications are due by 5pm on Thursday 15th June 2023.
CWS is supported by a large number of volunteers. Many help in the Christchurch office doing specialist tasks or working as part of a team on our regular major mailouts. We also have volunteers who represent us in their parishes and communities throughout the country. There is always room for one more. Please contact us if you would like to work as a CWS volunteer in the National office or in your local area.
CWS supports the Living Wage and is an accredited Living Wage Employer. All workers should be paid enough to cover food, housing, transportation, and childcare. The Living Wage is reviewed annually.
