The Background

Job description

Joining the overseas staff team either as a Country Manager or as a staff team member at Mission Direct is both rewarding and exciting. You really do get to be hands-on in working alongside the Regional Managers in shaping our project focus in-country. A volunteer would typically go on a two-week mission trip, where they will experience the country and help change lives. As a Country Manager or an overseas staff team member you will spend more time in country than a trip volunteer; anything from 2 weeks to 5 months, depending on the campaign and number of volunteer teams scheduled to run. During your time in country you will get embedded in the work we do alongside our partners - from visiting future projects and preparing for teams arriving, to sampling the rest and relaxation excursion, which takes place for a few days at the end of our trips.

2020 team dates: 25 Apr - 09 May 2020 / 07 Nov - 21 Nov 2020 / 16 Oct - 30 Oct 2021 (You will need to travel a few days before the team arrives and leave a day or two after they leave)
