Responding to global poverty and crisis

Global Aid Network (GAiN) is the official humanitarian partner of Agapé UK. We seek to respond to global poverty and crisis through helping with heart and hand.
We are currently looking for staff to join us full or part time in the following roles. Do you have a passion to use you gifts to serve in this way? Or know someone who does?

Full & Part Time Opportunities in Birmingham

All roles would be working as part of our central GAiN team based in the Agapé UK HQ in Birmingham. We provide on-the-job skills training and theological courses for all of our staff. Like many other Christian charities, Agapé UK staff members raise funds to cover their own salary and expenses. With plenty of training and help, staff members develop a team of people who regularly pray for them, encourage them, and give financially towards their work. While this can seem daunting, for over 50 years God has provided for hundreds of UK staff in this way.

Logistics Coordinator
The collection of Gifts in Kind (GIK) is a key strategy for GAiN in seeking to bring a very practical demonstration of help to people facing crisis and poverty. This role is suitable for someone who loves to be hands-on, is highly organised and able to relate well to people whether it’s a business who wants to make a donation or with volunteers who are giving their time to help sort and pack the items ready to send.

Overseas Trips Coordinator
Our opportunities to go overseas with GAiN project teams is a significant way for someone to give their time and skills as well as be impacted themselves as they go to serve. This role requires great people skills and is for someone who is organisationally sharp to ensure a smooth running of our teams right from the planning stages through to returning home and evaluations.

Communications Officer
Involving people is the heartbeat of GAiN and expressing our key messages to volunteers, donors, businesses and churches is essential to inviting people to be part of the network. Taking responsibility for our regular online and printed communiations will see this role develop a strategic appraoch to our overall communications.

Application Deadline: 1st April 2020
