Office and HR Manager

GFA World

This role is an exciting opportunity, to work alongside a team of people, passionate to serve the "least of these" in Asia.

Since 1979, GFA World have been committed to serving in Asia, often in places where no one else is serving, so that people there can experience the love of God for the first time. GFA supports national workers serving as the hands and feet of Christ in four main ways. Sponsoring national missionaries to minister to people’s needs, sponsoring children, investing in community development and helping families in need of care or during disasters.

“Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit, says the LORD of hosts.” —Zechariah 4:6

By joining this team in Manchester, your daily work will enable the sending of resources to the mission field.  This is an opportunity to let God put your talents to use in a Christ-focused ministry with an enormous eternal impact.

In addition to this, GFA will pour into you as an individual to train you up in the skills you need to do this role, and support you through prayer.
